How might we consider the full range of human diversity while engaging in problem-solving?

During this interactive workshop, educators and nonprofit professionals will explore the possibilities that lie at the intersection of culture, technology and design. Participants will have the opportunity to converse, question, analyze and design for the future while considering the full range of human diversity and people-first approaches to solving problems. This professional development workshop will also provide participants with an introduction to design, design processes, and Cooper Hewitt’s resources.
