Equity + Design Thinking Days: Reducing Bias , Mission Partners, Thursday, 18. July 2019

Building equity among teams and in storytelling are efforts we know are important to our clients and the communitIes they serve.
Join us for one of Mission Partners’ quarterly Design Thinking Days, which  focus specifically on Building Equity and Breaking Bias in social impact storytelling.
Hosted in Mission Partners’ Design Thinking Studio in Bethesda, this facilitated, hands-on session will guide workshop participants through the primary steps of Design Thinking, while learning how to use an equity lens to assist in problem solving, spotting bias, and building more inclusive communications efforts.
We’ll begin the session with an overview of the Design Thinking  process and share practical ways that your organization or department can leverage the tool  to build greater equity and break longstanding bias in your communications.
Over the course of the one-day session, each participant will have the opportunity to work through a problem real-time, walking away with a design thinking inspired framework for action. All participants receive real time advice and support in problem solving.
Mission Partners recommends that at least two members of a team or organization attend together, though this is not required. The session is especially relevant for Directors of Marketing, Communications, and Development, as well as Program Managers, Content Producers, and Event Organizers.  Lunch and snacks provided throughout the day.
Join us and experience the power of design thinking to unstick your communications problems.
Accommodation requests should be made to Bayonia Marshall at bayonia@ at least two weeks in advance of the session. A good faith effort will be made to fulfill requests made after July 4th.
Cost: $475 per person. Session workbook and lunch included.
