Equity + Design Thinking Days

Thursday, July 18, 2019, 12:00 PM

When most of us encounter a problem, we zero in on it. We consider it from every angle, taking it apart and running through solutions until we think its solved. But, what if we’re not thinking correctly about how to find the right answer? No matter your industry or discipline, to excel at problem-solving, there must be a willingness to go after problems in new ways, and to put people at the center of each solution. That’s exactly what we do at Mission Partners’ quarterly Equity+Design Thinking Days, hosted in our Bethesda, MD Design Thinking Studio. In each session, we welcome up to 8 social impact professionals to bring on their stickiest social impact or communications challenges for a day of guided exercises designed to provide fresh perspective to the problem, while also learning how to apply a human-centered, equity lens to your problem-solving approach. Over the course of this workshop, which includes team time and project-based learning, you’ll work through your challenge in real time with a small group of unlikely peers. Through the session, you’ll uncover fresh opportunities to see your challenges from a completely different perspective, and therefore gain fresh ideas on how to go about the solution. Read more about the Design Thinking approach to problem solving on our blog: https://mission.partners/theintersection/bring-on-your-unsolvable-problems/ This session is intended for two members of a team to attend together, though this is not required. The session is especially relevant for Directors of Marketing, Communications, and Development, as well as Program Directors, Managers, and Content Producers. Join us and experience the power of design thinking to unstick your communications problems. Special accommodation requests should be made to Bayonia Marshall at bayonia@mission.partners at least two weeks in advance of the session. A good faith effort will be made to fulfill requests made after July 5th. Unable to attend this class?
