The Nashman Center for Civic Engagement & Public Service in partnership with the Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship presents the Designing Solutions for Social Challenges workshop.

This experiential and interactive workshop exposes those in the nonprofit and social impact sectors the tools, tactics, and frameworks used by innovators, entrepreneurs, and designers to empathize with populations they seek to serve, define problem sets, and come up with solutions for changing the world.

Tools gained at this workshop will benefit those with a passion for social change and those at the early stages of exploring their own innovations, ideas, and social enterprises. No prior experience with design thinking is necessary to attend.

Background

Social and civic innovators and entrepreneurs around the world are tackling some of the most complex and challenging social problems of our time. These innovators use the design thinking and human-centered design methods to provide impactful solutions in the US and across the globe. This workshop will dive into design thinking as a way to help students frame problems and create solutions to social and environmental issues.

About the Facilitator

Scott Stein is the Associate Director for Student Entrepreneurship at GW. Scott has worked with Ben & Jerry's, the State of Oregon, Main Street Alliance, and Mobilize.org as social innovator, facilitator, and design thinker developing and implementing new approaches to solving social problems.
