Forward Faster By Design


Join our monthly innovation event in Charlotte

Forward Faster is a monthly event series in which we explore how Human-Centered Design can fuel business, civic, and social innovation. Sometimes the sessions lend themselves to hands-on workshops, while other times we'll have panel discussions with local leaders and practitioners. Now in its fifth year, Forward Faster has morphed into a forum where people from a wide variety of backgrounds "collide and connect" with others who share an interest in creativity, innovation, and design. If this sounds like your kind of tribe, make plans to join us at an upcoming event. 

Want to be part of the tribe? Stay up to date on events and announcements. (Please know we won’t wear out your inbox or share your information because we don’t like that either.)

Adapting to Disruption: A Human-Centered Approach

Thursday, April 9th

Zoom Virtual Meeting

8:00 AM - 9:00 AM


$10 for General Admission

$5 for Education, Government, and Non-Profit employees

If there were ever a time to explore how we might deal with disruption, it's now. With upheavals taking place across multiple sectors simultaneously, we are tasked with dealing with massive changes in real-time. And if that weren't enough, many organizations are also having to solve new problems while their people are working remotely. So how might we respond?

In this virtual session of Forward Faster by Design, we're going to explore how taking a Human-Centered approach to disruption can help our companies, our families, and our communities adapt to our current environment. We'll discuss specific tools we can use to lead with empathy and to reframe the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

When we hear the word innovation, we often think of products or services that seem to be completely brand new to the world. However, the vast majority of innovations are actually the result of people building upon the ideas of others and connecting existing dots in new ways. As such, one of the precursors to being a skilled dot CONNECTOR is to be a perpetual dot COLLECTOR.

In this session, we'll share proven practices for how to be intentional about "dot collecting" and how those practices can lead to "happy accidents," whether for yourself, your team, or your organization. We'll also hear from local innovation practitioners and artists about how they feed their curiosity, explore the world, and strengthen their creative muscles.
