Being good at doing good: Design precepts for Social Justice HCI projects

Jill Palzkill Woelfer
CHI 2016 Workshop, Exploring Social Justice, Design, and HCI (2016)


In this short position paper, I propose four precepts for engaging in design and HCI projects with social justice goals, based on over 8 years of experience working on research, design and service projects with homeless people and non-profit service agencies. I would like to discuss these precepts with other attendees at the Exploring Social Justice, Design and HCI workshop with the goal of developing a set of considerations that others can use when engaging in social justice HCI.
