DESIGNERS TAKING ACTION
Design By Humanity
DxH is a design collective and apprenticeship program pairing experienced creatives with fresh faces to collaborate on real-world projects advocating for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). We work on all topics regarding equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism.
To upskill Black Americans and allies committed to the pursuit of learning-by-doing into LX, design, and technical roles through our immersive design boot camp. To provide various creative services to organizations seeking consultation, products, and learning experiences designed from an anti-racist perspective. To advocate for equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism.
To create a pipeline of diverse voices in learning experience and design committed to upholding the values of anti-racism and social justice to change organizations systemically from the inside out.
HOW DO WE SUPPORT BIPOC?
In addition to our equitable selection process, we prioritize projects focused on anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion for our participants to work on.
DxH operates fully remotely. However, we are establishing our physical headquarters in the Greenwood district of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Greenwood campus will feature a free computer lab enabling participants without access to technology to participate in DxH's apprenticeship and other remote training programs as well. DxH is targeting a May 2021 launch for the Greenwood campus.
We plan to upskill members of the Greenwood community for lucrative remote eLearning jobs. Due to the nature of remote work, this will bring income back into the community instead of forcing long-time residents to leave for other markets to gain employment. We believe this model is a blueprint for other cities to bring economic justice to historically underserved communities and their residents. It's a simple plan: we will bring remote jobs to Greenwood and train Tulsans to do them.
WHAT SERVICES DO WE OFFER?
We offer business consultation, curriculum design, and eLearning subject matter expertise at no cost to charitable organizations.
