We all carry implicit biases, prejudices we aren't aware of that dictate decisions both minor and huge. In this playful talk, Emi Kolawole and Amy Lazarus not only unpack the often harmful effects of unconscious bias but also provide tools for discovering, dismantling, and even working more creatively with our own biases based on their innovative work with design thinking.
Amy and Emi are longtime friends. Emi has been an editor and designer at The Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the d.school) at Stanford University, a producer and editor at The Washington Post, an associate producer for "Washington Week with Gwen Ifill," and has performed at Radio City Music Hall. She is an alumna of the French-American Foundation’s Young Leaders program. Today, Emi is founder and CEO of the media and design consultancy Dexign LLC. Amy has served as the Executive Director of the Sustained Dialogue Institute and Campus Network. She is an alumna of the Coro Fellows program, a recipient of the USA Networks Characters Unite Award, and has been a back-up singer for Aretha Franklin. Today, Amy is the founder and CEO of InclusionVentures in San Francisco, California. Emi and Amy have both been named World Economic Forum Global Shapers. The duo has presented their joint project, “Design for Worldview,” at Twitter, SoCap, ITVS, Dreamforce, and venture capital firms.
