Let's have that uncomfortable conversation about equity and inclusion because that's the only way we can get things off the chest and start solving our problems. 1:00:54


If you're trying to fit a person into a box, especially in the design world, you're not going to have that much success. 0:14:00


The most important thing we're doing right now is acknowledging the issues that currently stand with inclusion, diversity, and equity. 0:51:55


[Organisations] try to integrate people into the organization, instead of trying to include them. 0:11:15


There is no real equity without self-reflection, and that self-reflection is in itself a privilege. 0:16:27
As designers, and architects, we can design things to meet the surface level needs, but we also need those anthropological thinkers to interrogate and attack the systems at play on a larger level. 0:33:00


It's okay to be in a grey zone and say “I don't have all the answers”. Accept ... and then seek them out. 0:58:56


If we don't actually have inclusion, we don't allow people's minds to expand, then we're not going to be able to actually understand who they are and what they do. 0:18:56
