The DFWD Resiliency Design Challenge is a three-month training program that accelerates a dynamic learning process, while adding value to designers and companies and creating a more resilient skill base for growth. This program activates designers to explore the tools of the Strategic Design Process through an intensive workshop series and apply the learnings towards a real-world project, all while working collaboratively with a team of other participants and a community partner.
For our most recent Design Challenge, the program focused on participants, team facilitators, and community partners who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). Four teams worked on solving challenges for local community partners, Incred-A-Bowl Foods, Project Weber Renew, RI Latino Arts, and Our Journ3i.
