This article by Anne-Marie Lubenau, director of the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence at the Bruner Foundation, describes the discussions held at the 2014 Design for Equity conference. The 125 professionals in attendance represented diverse fields, including community development, the arts, urban planning, philanthropy, advocacy, and city government. “Common themes,” Lubenau writes, “included the importance of ‘leveling the playing field’—providing access to opportunity, including power and choice, and the value of education and knowledge, and engaging people in the process.”
