Ash Center Room 226, 124 Mt. Auburn St., Suite 200-North, Cambridge, MA

Part of the Technology and Democracy Workshop Series

Anjelika Deogirikar, ORGANIZE Innovator in Residence, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Are you curious to learn more about applying design thinking? Anjelika Deogirikar will introduce human-centered design principles and discuss how to apply tools from the design thinker’s toolkit to your work as a policy innovator. Anjelika will draw on her recent experiences using human-centered design to help the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services rethink the organ donor and transplant ecosystem in the U.S. Students will apply these new tools to develop a practical innovation or creative solution to a big challenge within the sphere of cybersecurity, ‘making democracy work’, or digital media and politics.

Please note that space is limited. RSVP is required to participate in this event.

About the Technology and Democracy Workshop Series

The Ash Center’s non-resident Technology and Democracy Fellows will design and lead a series of hands-on workshops for Harvard Kennedy School students, co-sponsored by Tech4Change. Each workshop will help participants develop their “technological intelligence” and learn skills related to understanding, managing, or creating digital technologies with the potential to improve the quality of democratic governance.
