In the course of the workshop, they were introduced to tools and methods that would help them better engage children, parents and other stakeholders in the future.
In June 2018, we were a partner with the IIT, Institute of Design for the Design Intersection conference in Chicago. We interviewed leaders at the intersections of tech, design, and behavioral science. Although there were many great interviews that came out of this collaboration. Some of our favorites 5by5s include Access and Algorithms with Ruth Schmidt and Design, Data and Behavior in the Built Environment with Meghan Webster.
In June 2018, we partnered with the Service Design Network for the Midwest Conference. We interviewed industry leaders to understand what it means to establish trust and meaningful connections in-house and as consultants.
