How can we create change for the better? In this virtual workshop and conversation, participants will be challenged to think big about how we can make the world a safer place. From remote learning and adjusted workplaces to diversifying teams, designers at all stages of their careers are thinking big about the design process and how they can make an impact in their communities—and you can, too!

Join Cooper Hewitt educators, emerging designers, and professionals in the field for an interactive experience as they share stories, processes, strategies, and problem-solving mindsets that address the role of design in two pandemics—COVID-19 and systemic racism.

Recommended for ages 13+.
