Design for Belonging: a Notion resource

Welcome to my belonging and othering notes from the book Design for Belonging by Susie Wise. Please check out the book and the website!

These notes were created in Notion and there is the option to duplicate them for your own personal use. As with all things online, it's good etiquette to credit people who create things, please consider that when using and sharing.

I read the book last year and took a bunch of notes with the intention of publishing, but I then promptly forgot about it (πŸ™ˆ) until Ece Kurtaraner posted her notes on LinkedIn. So I tidied them up, and here we are!

All resources and notes related to Design for Belonging will also be logged in The Village under our async book club efforts.
