In an effort to inspire innovative leadership and collaboration, Hutchinson Community Foundation hosts a Community Connect series open to nonprofit staff and board members, as well as interested members of the larger community.
Social change is complex work. It requires considering the many stakeholders and factors that could affect outcomes, having deep understanding of people while seeing the bigger picture, gaining clarity and conviction despite incomplete information, and discovering and choosing interventions that have impact, in the multitude of possibilities. Design thinking—or human-centered design—is a powerful methodology and mindset to employ in this work.
Using resources from Stanford University’s d.school, we will go through a full design cycle in 90 minutes. This is a fast-paced experiential project where participants pair up to interview each other, identify real needs, and develop a solution for an example experience. No previous design experience is required.
The final 30 minutes will be spent in debrief and considering how to apply design thinking in our organizations and in the community.
