You've probably heard the phrase "design thinking" thrown around in meetings, at conferences, and in the pages of Fast Company, but what does design thinking really mean and how can you incorporate its basic principles into your work?

This webinar will introduce the foundational principles of design thinking in clear and simple terms, while providing real life examples as to how to adapt this framework to generate innovative solutions at your organization.

Through this webinar, Liz Anderson, Director of Engagement at the Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation at Georgetown University, and Megan Anderson, Interaction Designer at Google, will help you rekindle all forms of your thinking: emotional, kinesthetic, and visual to explore new mechanisms for problem-solving through human-centered design.
