Social Work: Design with Purpose

How can designers anticipate the needs of social workers and how can social workers use design thinking in their own work?On this week’s episode, we explore the intersection of social work and design. Sam is joined by Chōkdee Rutirasiri, VP of Experience Strategy and Research at Mad*Pow and Adjunct Professor of Design Thinking at Boston College.
