Our guest for this episode is Antionette Carroll, the Founder, President, and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab, a nonprofit educating and deploying youth to challenge racial and health inequities impacting Black and Latinx populations. She is a social entrepreneur, equity designer, international speaker and educator, and a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Specialist. Also, just an overall amazing, thoughtful, empathetic, and passionate human being who we are privileged to know and keke with. We quote Antionette at the beginning of Chapter 1, "Like all systems, systems of oppression, inequality, and inequity are by design. Therefore, they can be redesigned." – this statement has been used quite a bit in equity design work, do you want to expand on this statement? How did this statement come about.
“Like all systems, systems of oppression, inequality, and inequity are by design. Therefore, they can be redesigned.” —Antionette Carroll
