What is Inspire? 

Inspire is an applied learning experience for non-profit organizations created by The Social Impact Lab. This two part course shares design methods and tools from hundreds of projects completed with government, businesses and non-profit based organizations.  


Two distinct learning opportunities to help your team think and do differently.

 Inspire is a two part part course: first, a self-directed online course that provides the foundations of design thinking and tools to get started and second, a directed course that features more hands-on support and coaching.  

"Inspire helped us bring together more Deaf persons with the services and technology needed to advance their own access and opportunities.“
