About this event

Join OpenIDEO and GA for an engaging discussion on designing for social impact. Social impact in the context of design is about creating new products and services with the express intent of being for the public good, at scales both large and small.

Key takeaways: Gain insight from designers on how they use Design Thinking techniques to build community and create impact.

  • Understand how Human Centered Design methods can be applied to social challenges
  • Learn how to form effective and engaged community groups to work towards social good and create real impact
  • Roll up your sleeves and apply Design Thinking to a real community challenge

Why it matters: Collaboration and community led efforts help ideas get off the ground. By learning to apply Human Centered Design techniques to build community around ideas, not just for ideas, you can create a bigger impact. Gain insight from the OpenIDEO San Francisco Chapter on ways to tackle design challenges holistically and create meaningful solutions.
