Innovation through Gender-Centered Design Thinking

November 7, 2018, 10:30 am-12:00 pm

Embedding gender into business development and product design processes unlocks substantial market opportunities. Specialists will hold a lively conversation to shine the spotlight on why incorporating women’s unique needs, desires, challenges, and constraints in the design of products and services can drive innovation, shift gender stereotypes—both inside companies and in society—and open up new market opportunities. Participate in a live gender-centered design thinking challenge to put your insights to work to overcome a real business or social issue.
