Workshop: Design Empathy

selfThe design process starts with the designer. The Design Empathy workshop helps designers acknowledge their biases and challenge their assumptions.  Understanding these potential blocks will help you to connect with your customers, team members and stakeholders. Learn how actors, the world’s greatest empaths, use acting methodology to understand Self before stepping into the shoes of Others. Instilling Empathy through design research and beyond.

“The workshop illuminated a critical part of the design process — the idea of empathy, inclusion, and connection. These concepts are crucial and complex and are often un-articulated. Today’s session successfully got us thinking about connection and social dynamics in the way we work in our studio and in communities.” Studio Leader, Design for America
