Hierarchy of Needs
- Providing emotional validation and support
- Actionable items
- Additional resources
Equip individuals who have experienced harassment with practical next steps and emotional support.
Our proposal aims only to tackle sub-criminal harassment, offenses such as glaring, cat calling, lewd comments, etc.
Creating a Document: Onboarding
Onboarding prior to starting the documentation process provides the users with information on privacy concerns, the documentation process and what information they may need to note down.
Creating a Document: Documentation
Documenting incidences help users establish a timeline and reveal patterns in repeated cases of harassment. Users will also have the opportunity to export documents into PDFs, allowing them keep hardcopies of incidents reports to use as evidence if they wish to take further action.
After your documentation is done, enough. will also help connect you with a list of relevant services that can help you take additional action.
View and Sharing Stories
Viewing and posting personal experiences creating a sense of “strength in numbers” and enforces the feeling that users are not alone.
Learning about Harassment and Intervention Methods
Learn to spot harassment and what users can do when they see someone experience harassment.
Connecting people to local professional services and organizations if they wish to seek additional help and support.
Early Interface Sketches
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to get direct feedback from two senior designers from SAP. Key points that helped us move forward:
- Don't worry too much about feasibility
- Consider the use of data in this context
- how might we make this process more engaging for users
We user tested this iteration of our documenting process with two design students.Feedback and takeaways we got:
- Credibility and privacy concerns with who they’re giving this information to
- Lacking a clarity of intent of the system
- Tone of the copywriting was a little too aggressive, aim to strike a balance between empathy and empowerment (the colours too)
- The natural fill forms make sense for some questions, but are not always appropriate
As a cis male who has personally never faced harassment, getting to work on this project was an extremely eye-opening experience. To be able to do this project, I knew I had to heavily rely on my ability to empathize and understand a perspective that I personally had no experience with. Stepping far away from my comfort zone, the challenge this project brought has taught me the importance of being empathetic in the decisions I make when designing. Relying not on my own experiences and expectations but on research and personal stories from those who have experienced harassment.
