Gamification and DEIB - Inequality-opoly!
Join Dr. Fadia Nordtveit's conversation with Perry Clemons about Gamification and DEIB
Perry Clemons is an educator, game creator from Harlem, NY. The idea for Inequality-opoly came when Perry attended diversity, equity, and inclusion seminars. During these trainings, Perry noticed the difficulties the facilitators faced in demonstrating the effect of racial and gender discrimination in a way that is engaging and personalized to all the people in the room. As an educator for over a decade, he knows the best way to teach or reinforce something is to make it a game. He thought that gamifying diversity training would make for deeper understanding and richer discussions. He hopes to one day start his own education company leveraging the immense power to make positive social impact.
Inequality-opoly: The Game of Structural Racism and Sexism in America
is a diversity equity and inclusion training game that transforms recent national studies into an engaging, personalized, and educational experience that fosters genuine and informed conversations.
In a world where wealth inequality is increasingly stark, Inequality-opoly serves as both a tool for self-reflection and a space for dialogue about the structural inequality in their everyday lives. As an educational tool, it opens up conversations about topics most people have been afraid to discuss: race, gender and class. The goal is for participants to be able to recognize the benefits and disadvantages of the current system and create an awareness of how structural racism and sexism affects others. Inequality-opoly can be used in schools and workplaces to promote anti-racism, diversity and inclusion.
