2011 IDSA Western Conference
Is Social Design Good Business?
My name is Jason Morris, IDSA Western District VP. As your host for the 2011 IDSA Western Conference I look forward to welcoming you to this exciting design dialogue at San Jose University May 6-7.
Socially responsible design can make positive changes within a community by addressing humanitarian, environmental, economic and political issues. And, it can be personally rewarding to a designer. But, can socially responsible design be financially sustainable?
At the 2011 IDSA Western Conference we offer success stories from designers and organizations that are not only able to do good but also do well financially. This dialogue helps answer questions like: How can you target nonprofits as potential clients? How can your social design work be billable, not just pro-bono? How can you apply social design to your career? What opportunities are there for designers to get involved in projects in their local communities? How can design thinking tackle the social problems of our world, locally and abroad?
Become part of the dialogue. Get insipred by timely and informative sessions, benefit from exceptional networking opportunities and enjoy great nights out at the 2011 IDSA Western Conference
