Recruiting Tools

2-40 people

To effectively communicate with the individuals you are designing for, it is crucial to establish a plan regarding who to approach, what questions to ask, and what data to collect. By preparing in advance and keeping track of your interactions, you can ensure a diverse group of participants, including experts and non-experts, individuals of various genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as a wide range of attitudes, values, and viewpoints.

Workshop steps


Consult Extremes and Mainstreams to ensure you engage with a diverse range of individuals.


When deciding who to talk to, consider various factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, class, and social position.


When creating your interview plan, consider gender sensitivities. In certain communities, men interviewing women may not be well-received. If addressing sensitive topics, such as open defecation, ensure you comprehend the social dynamics prior to starting your interviews.


Conducting group interviews can be extremely beneficial, as they assist in identifying potential candidates for individual interviews.
