Who’s This For?

Practicing Designers


Designing for Social Systems (DSS)

The purpose of the Designing for Social Systems program is to empower practitioners in social impact fields to work in more effective, human, and strategic ways.  

The DSS Fellowship, previously known as the Project Fellowship, is a six-month full-time program for mid-to-late career social impact leaders to learn the methodology and rigorously apply it to ambitious projects with the potential for large systems-level change. 

The DSS Workshop provides participants with an opportunity to learn the tools and approaches of human-centered design, systems thinking, and communication design, and understand how to apply it to their own particular work.

The DSS Knowledge Base offers our resources free-of-charge to the public, so a greater audience can benefit from the methodology.

Who’s This For?

Leaders and practitioners from nonprofit, social impact, philanthropy, and governmental organizations.
