RacismIndigenous ways of knowingBehaviour change
We hired research experts in each domain area to gather insights and data to find critical leverage points that would help us design 2.0. Along the way, we actively looked for partnerships with organizations that were interested in making changes around racism, and ways to make deep and meaningful change with this work. From this discovery, we came up with potential guiding questions, which we shared with our mentors for advice and guidance.
While in discovery phase, we simultaneously ran an international speaker series to share expert insights and ideas around racism with Edmontonians. This series was open to community and attracted people working in this space and those curious around the city. The views of these expert authors on practises that were working outside of Canada helped us formulate our direction.
Based on these three factors — what we learned from Shift Lab 1.0, what we learned during the discovery phase, and what we learned from the speaker series — we landed on our scope and direction for 2.0.
