Lunch & Learn: Prototyping with Meghan Hellstern

September 25, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Human-Centered Design is all the rage. As a mindset and process for creative problem-solving, HCD is increasingly used by governments, startups, and non-profits alike. But how does it actually work in practice? And especially in cases where we’re not building digital products or working on a technology solution?
Join us on September 25 for a Lunch & Learn with Design Strategist Meghan Hellstern* as she discusses Human-Centered Design beyond the 101. We’ll hear from Meghan about her experience applying HCD in different contexts, with an emphasis on the practice of prototyping.
This event is for government members only. Please email to RSVP or learn more.

*Meghan Hellstern is dedicated to reimagining the relationship between organizations and the communities with which they work through the lens of collaboration, design and technology.
