Pulling from 10 years of experience in corporate, non-profit, and social contexts, he will show how both small and large organizations around the world have re-framed problems from a human-centered perspective to achieve truly disruptive impact, and how we can learn from these to build new companies which do the same.

This seminar is open to everyone at Illinois Tech. For more information regarding this seminar, please contact Mahesh Krishnamurthy, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, at 312.567.7232 or kmahesh@ece.iit.edu.
