WHAT IS A CO-DESIGN APPROACH?
Co-design is a well-established approach to creative practice that reflects a fundamental change in the traditional designer-client relationship. This approach goes beyond consultation by building and deepening equal collaboration between citizens affected by, or attempting to, resolve a particular challenge. A key tenet of co-design is that users, as ‘experts’ of their own experience, become central to the design process.

HOW DO WE DO IT?
We begin by identifying the needs, objectives, demands, and sensitivities of our clients and their audiences, which catalyzes a detailed work plan and regular check-ins for review and approval of content. See more in Intake Process. In contract development, we leverage intergenerational collaboration through our network of experienced advisors and Elders. We support clients in doing the same. This is one way we make our spaces and curriculum accessible to diverse abilities and circumstances.

With a commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility at the center of our work, at SETSI we have developed a series of Anti-Black Racism capacity building sessions for non-profits and the private sector. We have aligned with our organizational mentors to make a commitment to intersectionality at the heart of work.

Capacity Building Session Purpose:
To develop a common understanding, shared language, and collective energy amongst your staff about anti-racism and anti-oppression. To make anti-oppression foundational, moving it from a marginal to a mainstream piece of work, building from the commitments of intersectionality. To support the development of an organizational anti-oppression praxis, taking time for cycles of reflection and action, and an anti-oppression lens, through which all of our work can be viewed.

Presumptions and Inquiries:
You – organizationally – have great power, voice, and resources – how can we really use them meaningfully?

What are your internal actions to dismantle racism and white privilege?

How can we centre liberation, sovereignty, and solidarity at every level of work?

How may we encourage self-reflection and exploration of identity and history so that we can be aware of positionality in this work?

What meaningful contributions can you make from your positionality as an organization?

Who needs to be in which conversations, and who leads?

How can we integrate our solidarity into our work as a lens and not as an extra project?

How can you enable shared access to training / common foundations of learning for staff and members?

What modes of cultural safety and intercultural competency are appropriate/required for your stage of organizational transformation?


Brief Description Social entrepreneurship combines the passion of a social mission with the business ideas of discipline, innovation, and determination.
Why should we collectively unpack ethics in social innovation? In the Social Finance, Social Economy, Social Procurement, Social Acquisitions, Community Economic Development and Cooperative ecosystems ethics is often assumed?

There are practical, theoretical and profound reasons why broadening our understanding of social entrepreneurship and social innovation is important. The values required to scale the aforementioned ecosystems must be rooted in an ethical framework.

How should one think about the ethics of innovation?

There are clear ethical rules that govern innovation in specific sectors. In this capacity building session, we will interrogate models and through a participatory presentation as well as dialogue and deliberation participants will be edified and learn best practices from our collective lived experience.
