Design Thinking for Personal Growth & Social Innovation
Kaveh Sadeghian, Center for Social Impact Strategy
This session will introduce students to the core principles of design thinking, creativity, and social innovation. We will explore why meaningful work is difficult to come by and how the design thinking methodology can be leveraged to identify and ultimately create opportunities that exist at the powerful point of intersection between one’s identity, values, and the problems that weigh most heavily on our respective communities.
