Design for Social Impact Workshop

Design for Social Impact Workshop
The Design for Social Impact workshop will focus on learning design thinking methods to help create stronger, user-centered products and services in the social sector. This will be a fun day of hands-on activities that focuses on learning and practicing the core methods of the human centered design process. During the course of the day, we will apply a human-centered design methodology to Casa Central, a local nonprofit organization's challenge. Specifically, we will cover:

    • Building Empathy for your User
    • Making Sense of User Research
    • Generating Ideas and Prototyping Solutions
    • Pitching your Ideas

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.

You will leave this session equipped to apply human-centered design methods to challenges across industries and sectors.
