How to Apply Design Thinking to Your Career and Your Life

Explore the concepts of design thinking and how to apply them to career and life goals in this interactive Cal Day workshop.

Design thinking is a methodology for solving complex problems that's used by designers in developing new products. It relies on research, communicating with others, experimenting, and rapidly iterating solutions.

Come test drive design thinking concepts and identify some actionable steps you can take to pursue your next career move or life goal. You’ll learn some valuable design thinking strategies, gain a fresh perspective on career planning, and new ways of defining success.

Seating is limited. Sign up today and arrive early.
