Susie Wise is thrilled to offer the greater Good Shepherd Episcopal School community and The Monarch Experience Partners a 2-part workshop experience on Design for Belonging -- a powerful way to think about working across difference and the feelings we want to create within our groups and our communities. The workshop is online and will feature short talks, interactive sessions and breakouts. Plan to attend both sessions and save up to an hour in between sessions to try a safe-to-fail experiment.

SUSIE WISE is a restless optimist who sees design as a fundamental human capacity. She is currently working at the intersection of design + belonging and writing a book called A Designer's Guide to Belonging. She founded the Stanford University d.school's K12 Lab in 2007 to investigate the role design thinking could play in schools and in the education sector more broadly. Building programs like Discover Design Thinking, School Retool and the Shadow a Student Challenge, she helped spawn a national movement to bring design thinking into schools. Susie has been a fellow and faculty member with the National Equity Project where she collaborates on the Liberatory Design framework. Susie consults widely on using design thinking to develop cultures of innovation and build equitable learning environments. She has a PhD in Learning Sciences and Technology Design from Stanford University. She grew up in Indiana, Oregon and Washington, D.C., and now resides in Oakland CA with her husband and daughter. If you like documentary films, you might have seen her in the movie Babies.
