Roll up your sleeves and work alongside your fellow conference participants to solve a sticky, real-world challenge. Teams will brainstorm and prototype a solution for a nonprofit, mission-driven organization. Put your design skills to work to make a positive impact on the world.
Sign up for the Hackathon during the conference and make a difference. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to work in small groups and tackle a real-world problem. This year we are excited to work with DESIGNxHUMANITY to help them solve their challenges.
DESIGNxHUMANITY is a learning design collective composed of more than 350 people working to end systemic racism. It launched as a nonprofit to champion antiracism and create a diverse talent pipeline for the growing field of e-learning design.
Through a unique peer-to-peer program, DESIGNxHUMANITY pairs experienced designers with apprentices who may not have design experience or access to design school. The program helps black, indigenous, and people of color launch design careers at no cost, adding diverse voices and perspectives to the design industry.
