It is important to accept that everyone has their own biases, but how do we identify them? The Equalista app aims to educate with kindness and enlighten people with tools to check themselves and check their own privilege.
Additionally, there was a goal of providing tools for those suffering from inequality so they could have educational material to defend themselves with confidence and enlighten those not using the app.
Especially after a worldwide pandemic, it has become extremely difficult for kindergartens across Germany to be able to easily gain an overview in order to successfully administrate their organization.
Even kindergartens which are organized are working inefficiently with outdated processes and basing important information on paper which can get lost or fails to allow for transparent communication within teams.
This app aimed to solve those problems in addition to allowing for streamlined and secure communication between kindergartens and parents.
It is very hard for teachers to plan their lessons, they don’t have time for complicated, hard to learn apps.

No app out there has this capability.
Our target group was also not technologically advanced so my job was to create flows which were as simple as possible, or could be quickly learned without adding too much cognitive load to the already strenuous days that teachers normally deal with.
