About event

If there’s one thing we know at the SheHive it is this - a group of brave and well-intentioned women can solve just about anything. That’s why we are proudly partnering in 2019 with the Design Action Lab, a a nonprofit that aims to leverage design for social impact, to bring quarterly design challenges to the SheHive.

Join other civic-minded women, on all sides of the political spectrum, to engage in meaningful dialogue - and solutions - that address society’s most polarizing issues.

January Design Challenge: Reframing Hearts | Un-dividing a Landing of Immigrants

 Explore the polarizing facets of immigration dividing our social sea together. Facilitators will create a space for all voices to take a journey, over four weeks, through the design thinking process in this exploration.
