An Official Detroit Month of Design Event
@ The GVSU Detroit Center | Detroit MI | September 19, 2023 | 3:30-7:30pm | Free, Advance Registration Required

What does equity mean, particularly in education? We first invited Detroit to consider this question during the 2018 Month of Design. In the time since that event, the challenges in education have been beyond imagination, and as students live with the indelible impacts, they want their voices heard. Join us for an inclusive, hands-on workshop to re-consider the complicated question of equity in education. Using Design Thinking tools and methods, you’ll hear from students, and collaborate with others to imagine new social, economic and political futures for education and contribute to a positive and productive discussion around our city’s need for equitable opportunities. Whether you are a middle or high school student, parent, designer, educator, entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, neighbor/resident, government official or employer, your experience and voice matters. Food and networking included.
