Design has the biggest potential for impact, yet much of the world’s design power goes towards low-impact products. In this talk, you’ll hear about my past experience leading design at Watsi, a non-profit aimed at providing access to healthcare for every person on the planet, as well as Palantir’s work to help organizations working on many of the world’s hardest problems: creating slavery-free supply chains, improving global health and fighting disease outbreaks, and providing humanitarian relief in the wake of natural disasters, to name a few. Learn how designers can have gratification working on real problems in the real world.
