What will I learn?

Overview

If you could design the perfect U.S. President, what values, character attributes, and experience would top your priority list-–and why? By thinking through and discussing what’s really important in a leader, we might be better able to move beyond our biases and partisanship to improve our political discourse on a personal and a national level.

The 2020 US presidential election is fast approaching! If you could design the perfect U.S. President, what values, character attributes, and experience would top your priority list--and why? What might others designers say–and how might you (and the nation?) enable conversations that are enlightening, non-partisan, and productive?

Join Lisa Kay Solomon, Brie Linkenhoker, and Nancy Murphy for an afternoon of experiential design, reflection and conversation at the Stanford d.school. Through a series of “serious” games, scenario exercises, and conversations we’ll explore, individually and collectively, the qualities that make for a desirable president and how we can each contribute to better political discourse.
