“Solutioning Implications of Hegemony”


Learnnovators, a leading e-learning company in India, has published “Hegemony, Generational Profiling and Ageism” as the latest edition of their blog post.

In this two-part article, Mridula, their Principal Learning Consultant, explores the problematic effects of cultural hegemony in audience profiling, and how it limits solutioning capability. In this second part, she explores how hegemony and bias directly affect the quality of assumptions, solutions, conversations and value creation using the example of cybersecurity trainings!

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

“There are some biases that are harder to spot than others because they almost characterize the thinking of the field itself. Design is conceived in the real world; it is practiced by people living in the real world. These minds are also educated in design and conditioned daily by the real world… Norms aren’t neutral: who gets to define them and in what context, matters. It’s up to us to really look at the world around us and notice the instances that expose our de facto assumptions and biases, and how these influence our design choices.”
