Re: SuSanA provides space for discussions around Equity & Inclusion – which topics are important?

Dear all,
Francesca provided some really good icon ideas for the 8th category in her post! Would someone like to say which one they prefer?

Also, just a heads up: we now have the new 8th category as a yellow circle at the top right. The icon itself (inside the yellow circle) will come soon-ish, after our consultation period with the users.

Re: SuSanA provides space for discussions around Equity & Inclusion – which topics are important?

Dear Francesca,
I like the idea of 'people hugging' for this, it could have more than 2 people often referred to as group hug. Compared to others, the idea is new and as you pointed out gives a feeling of belonging and warmth.
Between the two raised hands, the one with colours looks better to me. The last one particularly feels cliche.

If you are okay with new ideas, I found the attached from a quick google search.

I like the fact that they are all holding hands and include a person on a wheelchair. Equity and inclusion have multiple dimensions and this kind provides a way to include them all in the image.

Regards

I also like the hugging icon. It's somehow unusual and different (I feel that we have seen many previous icons with hands before). Equity and inclusion has a lot do to with empathy and love, doesn't it.

So I would vote for this one:



I also like with this icon that the persons look neither male nor female. They could be interpreted to be from different ethnic groups who support each other. The simple style of this icon also matches quite well with our other category icons (whereas the more complex versions of a globe with people around it wouldn't match so well).

Paresh: about the icon that you found, I like it because the people look a little bit funny, and neither male or female. I have a small problem with the wheelchair user though. I know it is meant to symbolise someone with a disability but I worry that we only think of people with mobility problems and not think of those with other disabilities, like vision or mental impairment.

Looking forward to further brainstorming inputs?

Regards,
Elisabeth

Hi,

I am for the hugging icon, it is not usually used.. It brings in an element of compassion which I believe we need while tackling challenges faced by all humans.
