"Analytical thinking contributes to strong design and helps bring focus and productivity to our work. But not-thinking and not-focusing have their own advantages. Join us to explore the ways not-thinking and not-focusing function and talk about some of the ways we can build them into our processes. Alice Ro took a circuitous route to her field, going from anthropology to publishing to metal-smithing to industrial design school, where she discovered that design research gave her the means to put her many interests together. Now Alice works as a strategic designer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where she created an initiative for patient experience, All Care Together, that won the Design and Innovation Conference’s 2019 award for Empathy. Her 17 years of practice have included consultancy and in-house work, services and products, teaching and mentoring. She believes sensitivity to the human experience is key to designing meaningful solutions. She lives in Brooklyn, NY, and makes pottery in her spare time. She teaches Design Research Methods & Practice at Harbour.Space University." @The Club
