Reimagining Design: Unlocking Strategic Innovation

Session Details

Kevin will share the ambitions behind his first book, Reimagining Design: Unlocking Strategic Innovation (The MIT Press). The writing journey unpacked a series of unique multidisciplinary leaps across his lived personal and professional experience.  For anyone curious about a wide range of things, Kevin offers a story of how he made his curiosities work for him and create value for others.

Kevin will share visual anecdotes that illustrate how design changed his life, and how he observed design transforming organizations as well.  Kevin’s arguments crack through the glass ceiling of ambiguity that multidisciplinary teams may face when it comes to understanding design against newly emerging realities.

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) serves as an important underpinning in Kevin’s story as a Black man who’s experienced exclusion.  He’ll introduce us to the leadership tact necessary to set a new tone to ensure our future design & innovation teams actually mirror the composition, needs and values that exist within an increasingly connected world.
