A few weeks ago, I had the chance to interview Dr. Susie Wise on the big idea of designing for belonging. Dr. Wise is a true design thinking expert who asks hard questions about the intersection of design and equity. I have followed her work for years and so I was delighted when her publisher reached out to me about a podcast interview. I read her latest book Design for Belonging in a single day and then re-read it more slowly. It’s a fast read with big ideas but it also has specific strategies and protocols you can use in both the K-12 and higher education levels. I always love when books have a visual orientation and this book is beautiful.
