Our initiative is to construct a positive space for social innovation:

Join the Stanford Women's Community Center at the first ever WCC Design-a-thon, where we will apply design thinking to pertinent women's issues.


Potential challenges:

  • Dearth of women and minorities in STEM fields
  • Body image, women's health products
  • Sexual and reproductive health
  • Dating/relationship abuse
  • International women's issues


After a series of flash talks, participants will choose a specific topic to address and will then form teams of three or four to design a solution! Winners will receive a femtastic prize (tba).


Speakers:

  • Kristen Lohse, The Body Positive
  • Representatives from the SHPRC
  • and hopefully... Debbie Sterling, GoldieBlox!!!!!
