What we're about

We use Design Thinking methods and Human-Centered research to collaboratively tackle problems facing underserved people and communities:

• Nurturing Human-Centered Design (HCD) in the DC area by offering hands-on opportunities to learn, practice, use, and teach HCD methods for developing stakeholder empathy and solving tough social problems.

• Activating the community to develop solutions for problems facing typically disenfranchised groups and to connect, collaborate, and share lessons learned.

• Developing partnerships with local businesses, government, and nonprofits to advance HCD, social entrepreneurship, and promote social justice.
