mini-conference alert: Creating Infectious Action through Social Enterprise

How might one apply design thinking to create infectious action through social enterprise?

As part of the CIA-KGB class being taught at the d.school, we’ll be holding a "mini-conference" next week, and you’re invented to attend.  We only call it "mini" because it’s not a full-day event.  However, as you can see below, the speaker roster is simply amazing.

Here are the speakers (in order of appearance):

In addition to getting to hear each of these people speak about creating infectious action through social enterprise, we’ll also be treated to a panel discussion with them moderated by CIA-KGB teaching team member Debra Dunn.  And, this being the d.school, we’ll retreat afterward to the lobby for some heated discussion about design thinking, as well as some tasty drinks and snacks.

This year’s CIA-KGB mini-conference is focused on the domain of social enterprise because this year’s class will be embarking on a five-week design project on behalf of Global Giving.  Last year’s conference talked more generally about creating infectious action, and was a blast.  Hope to see you there!

    Ditto Lilly. Know some folks on the East coast that would really gain from this.
