The Design Thinking Meetup  Group is a collection of individuals who understand the importance of culture and design, and the role both play in the world of technology and business. We are passionate about mixing anthropology with economics, psychology with design, cultural observation with implementation, humanity with consumerism, and other clever concoctions.

We meet to learn about human-centered design and put human-centered design to work by volunteering for non-profit and charity organizations!

We are a group of anthropologists, designers (of all types and stripes), researchers, artists, technology professionals, and more. Come and join in our conversations and activities!
