What is Liberatory Design? 

Liberatory Design is an approach to addressing equity challenges and change efforts in complex systems. It is grounded in an integrated part of NEP’s Leading for Equity Framework, which meshes human-centered design (aka design thinking) with complex systems theory, and deep equity practice. It is a process and practice to:

  • Create designs that help interrupt inequity and increase opportunity for those most impacted by oppression
  • Transform power by shifting the relationships between those who hold power to design and those impacted by these designs
  • Generate critical learning and increased agency for those involved in the design work

Liberatory Design is both a flexible process that can be used by teams and a set of equity leadership habits that can be practiced daily. It can be used in a variety of ways and by a variety of actors, including innovation efforts, strategic planning, community-driven design, and collaborative teams.
