Harnessing and Measuring the Creative Potential of Social Design
January 7, 2019
Join us on January 15 as JSI’s Anne LaFond, director of the Center for Health Information, Monitoring and Evaluation, will join Cheryl Heller, founding chair of the Design for Social Innovation MFA program at the School of Visual Arts and president of the design lab CommonWise, for a webinar exploring social design.
Design thinking, or human-centered design, has gained increased attention in the development sector and millions of dollars in investment to solve challenging public health issues. This webinar will present an overview of social design, how it works, and learnings from research on how leading practitioners are measuring the effectiveness of their work.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation. Participants are encouraged to bring questions relevant to their organizations’ work.
Date: January 15th
Time: 10-11am PST/1-2pm EST
