Just in case launching our Annual Report and our new website wasn’t enough DI excitement for this month, we thought we would throw one more thing your way. DI and the Tarsadia Foundation are thrilled to announce the release of Design and the Social Sector: A Guide to Partnering — a tool that helps designers join forces with non-profit organizations and other socially-minded groups to address vital human needs.
In 2011, DI teamed up with the Tarsadia Foundation to make collaboration between designers and the social sector clear and simple. Design and the Social Sector: A Guide to Partnering is the outcome of this partnership. This “how-to” guide is filled with interactive tools for designers that want to partner with organizations and use their design skills to make a difference. The content is based on Design Impact’s hands-on experience partnering with various organizations over the last four years.
And the best part: the guide is free! Access it here on our publications page, where you can download it and make it your own.
Finally, we’d like to thank the Tarsadia Foundation for making the creation of this guide possible, as well as Alexandra Dellis-Harcha for her awesome graphic design work and dedication to this project.
Don’t forget to write to us and let us know how you use this guide! And, if you have any suggestions for additional content, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
PS: As an additional part of our partnership with Tarsadia, we created a customized capacity assessment tool to help Tarsadia choose partner organizations in the future and gauge their social innovation capacity. This internal tool is the result of a year of extensive research and facility visits with organizations around India. If you have any questions about this portion of the project or are interested in learning more about our capacity development work, please contact email@example.com.
