Designing for Social Systems Workshop

We offer an intensive workshop to create more human-centered, strategic, and effective programs and organizations in the social sector. We teach how to apply the tools, approaches, and mindsets of design thinking, integrated with the basics of systems thinking, to tackle complex multi-stakeholder social systems projects.
