Join us for a hands-on experience in design thinking to solve social challenges.

Date:           Saturday, May 25th, 2019
Location:    Notman House

Time:          9am - 6pm

In collaboration with IBM and TechAide.



Design Thinking is a unique approach to problem finding and problem solving with a focus on human meaning and empathy. Design thinking crosses the traditional boundaries between public, for-profit, and nonprofit sectors. By working closely with end-users of technology, design thinking allows high-impact solutions to bubble up from below rather than being imposed from the top.
This one-day workshop will teach you how to apply Design Thinking to complex social problems such as finding ways to improve patient-centric healthcare systems and social assistance programs. 
Subject Matter Experts will be onsite to provide context on problems related to healthcare, poverty, and social exclusion. As will mentors with backgrounds in design thinking, and also in developing AI solutions for healthcare and social good.
