Design for Social Impact Workshop series
Learn core methods of the human centered design process in this four-session series
- May 24 – June 14
The Design for Social Impact workshops are a series of four workshops that focus on learning new methods to help create stronger, user-centered products and services in the social impact space. The workshops will be mostly hands-on activities that focus on learning the core methods of the human centered design processes. We want you to leave with new skills that you can bring back to your team.
This is not a workshop just for designers (though we welcome them). We encourage participants who work in not-for-profit, social services, or anyone interested in learning about tools to help make a difference to attend the workshops. There is no prior experience necessary.
To get a better understanding of the entire design thinking process, it is ideal to attend all four workshops. Each runs from 6-8:30pm.
