Design Your Future Workshop

The future can feel uncertain, so we created Design Your Future as a program where students learn to apply human-centered design to their careers and life beyond Columbia. Our first go around this semester was overbooked, so we decided to host a one-time workshop on

Tuesday, May 2nd from 1pm to 4pm.

The goal of this program is to help you better navigate your career and life choices in the face of uncertainty.
Design Your Future gives you the tools to help you get unstuck in life. Design relies heavily on small experiments and rapid iteration. You will learn how to craft and run small experiments that can keep your work and life choices aligned with your goals. This program is highly interactive–there will be far more activities than lectures.

During the workshop you will:

▪ Reflect on strengths and passions
▪ Map out multiple future trajectories
▪ Design small experiments for your life
▪ Identify and address personal barriers

Design Your Future is open to the entire Columbia community. Students facing imminent graduation may find this workshop particularly relevant!

Note: this program will leverage design but not teach it explicitly. If you are interested in learning how to practice human centered design or use it to launch a startup, see our other programs.

Date and Time:

Tuesday, May 2nd — 1pm to 4pm

Please sign up here so we know about how many people to expect.
