Global Conference 2017

Design thinking -- or human-centered design -- is moving beyond the realm of industrial/product design into the social sector, offering a powerful new framework for evaluating problems and finding solutions that are often more user-friendly and, by extension, more effective. This interactive, hands-on workshop, organized by the Center for Strategic Philanthropy, will present an introduction to the fundamentals of human-centered design by two of the field's most respected experts. Questions to be considered include:

  • How can I bring more meaning into my life?
  • How can I foster more meaningful relationships?
  • How can I craft a philanthropic portfolio that is representative of my values?
