Humanity-Centered Design Workshop

Humanity-Centered Design Workshops explore human-first focus in service delivery and experience design.

Identifying a roadmap for impact with the human experience at the center of problem-solving.

Utilizing collaborative mediums like Miro and our Strategic Design in a Box, we can work together to identify a roadmap for impact with the human experience at the center of our problem-solving. By completing exercises together, we are able to co-design metrics, outcomes, and actions desired by our partners and their stakeholders.

Inspiration, Ideation, and Implementation are the three main goals of humanity-centered design, and at The Forbes Funds, this process also includes iteration. Together, we think creatively about what is possible.
