Doing Good With Design Thinking
Last year's break-out session featured a fascinating story about how design thinking is being used in Southeast Asia to stop the intractable problem of pandemics. We then looked at how the same principles could be applied to a social problem in our own backyard, homelessness. This year's session will explore an intractable problem: discrimination. Whether getting a loan or a latte, the issue pervades society. With a focus on race, gender, religion and orientation bias in technology, we'll look at how a human centered-approach to innovation can make real change and, in many cases, real profits. Featuring some of the top minds in both entrepreneurship and design thinking, this session will motivate, incite, and ignite.
