Over the course of this 2-part workshop, April 20 and April 27, participants will be introduced to an empathy-based framework that allows them to discover and define the challenge at hand and then ideate and test solutions for a changed future state.

Participants are asked to commit to the following:

  • Bring a sense of curiosity
  • Be present and engage with others
  • Share ideas and experiences
  • Listen from a place of empathy
  • Challenge what might be familiar to them (ways of thinking, assumptions)

In return, participants will:

  • Have the opportunity to strengthen interpersonal skills
  • Gain a heightened ability to empathize
  • Be exposed to design thinking processes, including a human-centered approach to problem solving
  • Learn to brainstorm and synthesize information
