Designing Women: Do Women Innovate Differently?

As design thinking expands beyond Stanford and start-ups to corporations and non-profits, we wanted to explore whether women bring a unique approach or perspective to innovation. Many of the most visible pioneers of design thinking have been men yet the approach is rooted in empathy, a trait often associated with women. We’ll talk to female practitioners of design thinking about what strengths women innovators bring to the table and debate whether gender plays a role in innovation at all.
