Description

Think back on your life experience. How does it shape your view of the world? How does it determine with whom you interact and with whom you don’t? How might your worldview seep into the products and services you’re designing and funding? “Design for Worldview” is an interactive workshop that applies the problem-solving power of human-centered design to the challenge of building awareness of unconscious bias.

Through this high-energy design challenge, participants leave with a prototype that will help their creativity and leadership. The workshop catalyzes conversation on the most pressing issues within organizations, including recruitment, retention, engagement, culture, and products and services. The prototyping process leverages neuroscience research for changing behaviors.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increase individual awareness around the impact of perspective and bias.
  • Practice recognizing and addressing bias in daily work.
  • Learn a concrete approach to leveraging your innate creativity to counteract your innate bias.
