Finding solutions for complex societal challenges is difficult, unreliable, and often unsustainable. A design thinking approach is a way to create products, services, and experiences that are at the core of innovation, are deeply connected to the people or customers you are serving, and can lead to transformative change.
Design Thinking for Social Impact is for non-profits and social entrepreneurs looking to create a competitive advantage through the innovative design of their programs, products, and services. The Commons, a student innovation program that hosts workshops and skills accelerators utilizing design principles, will take us through the basics of implementing a design centered approach. Come ready to have fun and be creative!
