The private sector will have an extra large role to play in reaching a zero-emissions future and the power to shift the private sector is in the hands of employees. But what are the steps involved in reducing an organization's emissions to zero? What kind of conversations need to be had in the...

CSI has always been about collaboration. How many times have we heard “we need to get out of our silos?” Yet, uptake on collaboration can be spotty and a lot of collaboration tends to be with those in our own inner circles, not the boundary spanning efforts needed for systems change. Plus, of course, collaborating well is an art. The pandemic has re-affirmed that extensive collaboration is not only possible, but essential for solving complex problems. The time is now to work together as...

Social Design is an evidence-based approach to problem-solving. It's a process that includes a discovery phase to understand user needs, pain points, and success, followed by a prototype phase where solutions are tested and iterated upon until success is reached. It sounds linear, but in reality, it's a continuous feedback loop that looks kind of like the CSI logo. How is it different than other design disciplines? Good question. Social Design is in the same family as User-Centered Design, or...
