We can be bystanders, or we can be active participants in change. We can accept the designs of the past as given to us or shape the future with ideas and values that are ours. As the world begins to open again, the possibilities ahead of us may seem overwhelming. One way to navigate a rapidly changing future is to apply an innovation and design lens to our futures. Join Cense Inc President, Cameron Norman, an innovator, designer and creative thinker and Liz Weaver in conversation as they launch an innovation and design helix. The innovation and design helix will provide participants with the pathways to apply design thinking to rapidly shifting contexts. Learn how the design helix can be instrumental in leveraging capacity within your organization.
