Your event sponsorship and attendance were instrumental in enabling 2017 Pioneer, Stanford’s Director of Teaching and Learning Carissa Carter, to share her path from practicing geology to empowering a diverse group of Stanford students from a broad range of disciplines with design tools and process. The projects demonstrated by those students truly reinforce the transformative power of design.

Moderator Muriel Maffre, executive director of the Museum of Performance and Design in San Francisco, helped us further explore the relationship between empathy and responsibility in design.

We hope you found the presentation and their dialogue to be thought-provoking. If you have additional questions you’d like Carissa to answer, you can send them to  and Carissa will respond to selected questions on the IIDA NC blog

IIDA Northern California is a richer community for your contribution towards this celebration of Design for Empowerment, and we truly appreciate your participation.
