Data, Design and the Venture Studio:A New Model for Social Change
Technology, Social ImpactPurchase Tickets
Today’s challenges – climate change, poverty, inequality, and others – are so complex and intertwined that there is rarely one solution or intervention that will make meaningful change. Denise and Aman have a combined 30+ years of working in design, data science and social change. Their work often achieves impact through “perturbing the system” – working at several levels at once to influence, build capacity, and release solutions that affect the system in multiple places, with a cascading effect. Today they do that work for The Data Guild, an impact-focused venture studio bringing together viewpoints from design and data science to bring about change in some of our greatest challenges, from local to global in scale. Denise and Aman will discuss previous work with UNICEF Innovation, The Girl Effect, DataKind and others. They’ll also explain the working model for The Data Guild (part venture studio, consultancy, strategic partner and expert network) and why their team is making a bet that a systems-based approach is the key to impactful change.
