Join the Conversation

The Measured Summit will be a participatory, day-long designed conversation about how to evaluate and improve the impact that social design has on human health.

Short keynote presentations by leading funders, designers and social innovators working in the U.S. and internationally — each focusing on a provocative question or idea — will be interspersed between interviews and exchange between speakers and audience.

Provocateurs will interact with audience members, provoking dialog, surfacing and synthesizing questions. They’ll mingle with everyone during breakfast and breaks to hear what people are thinking or want to talk about more.

The entire event will be filmed and recorded, so that we can use what we learn to continue this project of measuring social design’s impact, long after our day together.

Keynotes are organized in categories that map the issues in measuring social design. [see all participants here]

The conversation will begin at a continental breakfast and culminate with a lively reception at the end of the day.

The Measured Summit will bring together leaders and practitioners from business, the social sector, foundations, technology and design to investigate the needs and establish the practice of monitoring and evaluating how design contributes to social impact initiatives.

Content from the summit, including case histories and interviews of all speakers and relevant attendees will be used to create a film, online journal, and brochure that will be made available to funders, NGOs, corporations and practitioners around the world.
