Human relationships are at the center of humanity. They drive our culture, performance, and results across any organizational structure, geography, or sector. “Designing for Humanity” is a moral imperative we must consider embodying today to be successful in our impact. The inquiry, practice, strategy, and methodology allow for practices like narrative intelligence and design beyond empathy.
In this special event, Michael O’Bryan will shed light on these concepts and practices and lead us in a workshop on how to expand our knowledge and practices to reach greater relationship, approaches, and ultimately practices in design. The tools that Humanature deploys sit at the intersection of human, economic, and ecological resilience.
