Along with back to school schedules and pumpkin-flavored everything, Fall has ushered in some very exciting developments in the Design Impact world.
First and foremost, we have the pleasure of welcoming Geoff Zoeckler, SEEK innovation consultant and the latest addition to our DI family. Geoff’s deep background in human-centered design coupled with his passion for social change make him a perfect fit as our new Social Innovation Specialist.
