We’ll be splitting attendees up in 2 groups to foster intimate discussions. We will have subject matter experts (SMEs) for each topic that will help provide key insights and answer questions. Before the event, we will send out some articles so that attendees can come informed and excited to discuss with the rest of the group. Afterwards, we will discuss as a larger group all that was learned.

Morgan Landis, Contented Design:
Product and Service Designers help make our daily lives easier. From working a new machine to handling a stolen credit card, designers can make a stressful situation and simplify it so you understand what needs to be done. Designing for social change is similar; take the same principles and apply it to issues that affect disenfranchised groups. By making it easier to see what the problem is, and what needs to be done, we can change daily thoughts and habits to create a better world. I have helped nonprofits and social entrepreneurs for five years, ensuring their designs are sharing effective messages for their cause.
