Flourish: Design + Social Impact

"Design for Good" is the phrase of the day, but what does that really mean? How can we, as designers, move the needle to influence positive social change and create social impact? And, as designers, what are our moral responsibilities to operate under a code of ethics and moral standards? Join Liz Rose for a candid and open discussion surrounding the intricacies of working in the social impact sector. We'll talk about how designers as social entrepreneurs have succeeded and failed, and what we can learn from these examples. 

Leading up to this meeting, think about the phrase "Design for Good" and what it means to you. What are your personal standards for design ethics? Have you faced challenges staying committing to your personal design ethics? 

Liz Rose will lead a short presentation and provide various prompts to guide a thoughtful discussion.
