Ep 09: A voice for Gig Economy workers
Drivers, carers, babysitters, professional nannies, cleaners and many other workers are now, more than ever before, using online marketplaces to find jobs. Often using an app. But the conditions they work under are not equal around the world. In fact, in a worrying development, an increasing number of companies see value in avoiding traditional employees and the usual employer/employee set-up. You could argue the Gig Economy, as it’s called, has changed the way we work forever. But what about the people doing these jobs?Guro Røberg talks to Dawn Gearhart, Director of Gig Economy Organising at the NDWA (National Domestic Workers Alliance), who has made it her mission to give Gig Economy workers a voice. In this episode, you’ll hear about:- What the Gig Economy is and the ideas behind the business models being used today- The costs and consequences for workers using open platforms for jobs- How design plays a significant role, particularly how design solutions have produced new problems- And who the allies and antagonists are in this overall story.You can find out more about the NDWA here: www.domesticworkers.org… and you can find out about this episode and other YELLO episodes at Designit.comWrite to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a guest or topic suggestion.Hope you enjoy,The YELLO team.

Ep 08: Unpacking Circular Economy
Let's explore the world of Circular Economy, particularly how it applies to businesses. Humans have been taking, making and disposing of the stuff we need in an alarmingly linear way for too long. And, let's face it, our waste often ends as landfill. A different, increasingly important approach is that of a Circular Economy, which follows a non-linear flow. Designing products that can be "made to be made again", for example. You could say it's a mindset shift affecting everyone from single consumers to connected communities, stretching worldwide. Join Guro Røberg in conversation with two experts working with Circular Economy daily. Emma Gains is Sustainable Development Lead at Arup Denmark, and Melissa Ciardullo is Project Leader for Circular Product Development at IKEA. Both companies are recognized as being leaders in initiatives around this topic. In this episode, you'll hear about: - The role circular economy and circular design can play in shaping your business in the future, - Principles that can help you steer a safe course on what can be a seemingly tricky journey, - And what could happen if businesses don't adopt this shift soon. We hope you enjoy it!

Ep 05: Leading with diversity and inclusion
Female leadership is a subject that has been highly-discussed for some time. And the facts out there clearly state we are losing pace. There’s a lot of work still to be done. Just as there’s work to be done to address a lack of diversity, inclusivity, and equity in organisations and businesses.One organization bringing the public and private sector together, and giving female leaders a voice, is the Nobel Peace Center. Oslo PAX, the beginnings of a movement from the Peace Center - featuring Nobel Laureates, changemakers, and activists as guests - highlights the need for action when it comes to diversity and gender inclusion in peace and war.So, this episode is all about Diversity, plus Leadership and Sustainability, seen through the lens of the Nobel Peace Prize and Nobel Prize-winners.Joining us to share her take on them is Kjersti Fløgstad, CEO of the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway. Kjersti has led a fascinating career spanning corporate and social sectors. She’s been in leadership positions since she was 30, a Director for one of Norway’s banks at 33, and the Secretary-General of UNICEF Norway for ten years.In this episode, you’ll hear how you as a business can gain from, and speed up, the process of diversity and sustainability. You’ll hear reflections on the qualities that make a good leader – based on experience, recognizing your own bias, and the barriers that still exist. And you can expect honest discussion around the experience of being a woman in a leadership role today and why it’s important that businesses and organisations come together.If you would like to learn more about the Nobel Peace Center and Oslo PAX visit their website: www.nobelpeacecenter.org/en/news/diversity-matters-gender-and-inclusion-in-peace-and-war And if you'd like to know more about Designit, you can find us on Instagram, LinkedIn and at www.designit.com Leave us a rating or review if you liked this episode – we’d love to know what’s on your mind so we can keep making this podcast better every time.And if you never want to miss an episode, consider subscribing.See you next time!// Photo credit for this episode's cover:With thanks to Ingvill Bryn Rambøl/Nobel Peace Center

Ep 02: The mess we're in
Mike Monteiro, author, designer, and co-founder of Mule Design, based in San Francisco, joins Guro Røberg from our Oslo studio to talk about how we can begin to think through the problems we're facing in the world right now. His message is clear: there’s work to be done. Lessons from our recent history serve up some useful teachings on how to design ethically (and unethically). We’ll examine some of those more closely, and critically. As a champion for design, education, leadership, working practices, and diversity – Mike believes we can build better societies for all if we just bother to learn from our mistakes and understand what it really means to design responsibly. These are topics covered in both his latest book ‘Ruined by Design’ …AND in this episode. // If you arrived at this episode and wonder what podcast is about, what it stands for, take a listen to Episode 00 - everything you need to know is in there.// Subscribe so you'll never miss a thing.// And, if you have ideas or suggestions you’re just burning to share, write to us at email@example.com - we’ll try our best to follow up.Enjoy! // PS: the artwork for this episode was provided to us by Mike himself.
