New Possibilities: Applying Design Thinking to Your Career
Thursday, January 30th, 1-2 pm ET
Design thinking is a creative and playful problem-solving method that encourages experimenting and trying things. The principles of design thinking have been popularized in the book “Designing Your Life” by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans from Stanford University.
Zunaira Malik, CSH’14, will show how to apply this approach to your career to uncover insights and generate ideas in an untraditional way. We’ll also discuss the meaning behind the “art of the possible” to generate fresh options for achieving what’s next in your career.
