The Social Impact Lab is a hands-on, team-based experience for those who want to make a difference in their community.
An eight-week marathon. Powered by design. To multiply your impact.
Grounded in design thinking
Using a design thinking framework, teams work with local projects to research, ideate, build and test solutions to address a specific challenge.
At the beginning of each sprint, lab participants meet together to hear from experts about an important step in the design process. Teams then apply these best practices to specific projects to research, design and plan possible solutions. The lab culminates in a two-day hackathon where teams get live feedback on their prototypes from the community.
design experience not required
The Social Impact Lab was made for local professionals who are curious or passionate about social impact design or interested in applying their professional skills to a different context outside their current day-job. Those with a background in design, interested in design thinking, or want to see human-centered design in action should also apply.
