Social Innovation Forum
Urban Grind East

June's Forum focuses on sustainability. How do you implement innovation in a way that creates lasting change? How do you preserve and maintain the change you've worked for? This month's forum will guide you through both of these considerations, the two sides of real sustainability. Join us to share your ideas and discuss emerging local and national concepts and projects and how they are sustaining the good! The Springboard Social Innovation Forum offers a monthly event designed to support those interested in creating a better future. Our focus is to help practitioners or potential practitioners of social projects push beyond discussion and debate into action. Each Forum will inspire and teach with ideas, powerful role models, and stories. Speakers, content experts, panels, and workshops will help you improve your strategies for planning and launching effective social ventures. The Forum will create a context to connect, learn, and take action around ideas that lead to tangible change—all in a venue designed for building community. Cost is $5.00 at the door.

The World is Upside Down: The Impact of Design and Social Media on Politics and Society
Portland State University Rec Center – Auditorium 1

The web and mobile phones are rapidly changing how we connect to friends, family and our community, as well as with communities around the globe. It's hardly imaginable that social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter, along with mobile phones, could help to peacefully topple regimes in the Middle East and so effectively rally global support for the victims of the earthquakes in Japan.

Join a panel of web, mobile, design and social media experts as they explore the future of communication and its potential as a catalyst for positive change.

Designers Taking Action
AIA Center for Architecture

Design has an extensive impact on how social movements are activated. Designers are engaging in campaigns and social issues at increasing levels, and non-designers are learning and implementing design practices for a more effective movement. Design is employed to shape activism, including everything from establishing a voice and brand, to empathizing with an audience and rapidly prototyping to maximize your impact.

Kicking off this monthly event will be speaker Natalie Sundeleaf Sept, who has found her passion at the intersection of activism, engagement, art, and design.

Natalie will discuss how designers, makers, and artists react to times of change through both resistance and forward thinking. Natalie calls herself a meeter and a maker, and turned her energy into activism when she worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Post-election, Natalie returned to PDX and organized What Now, a powerful event at Revolution Hall discussing the future of the Portland community with 1500 passionate attendees.

Taking place at the Center for Architecture the morning of May 5th, this presenter will help convey to attendees the power of design in social activism. Complete with breakfast and coffee, the kickoff of Design Museum Mornings is not to be missed!


Design Museum Mornings is a monthly event series brought to you by Design Museum Portland. These events are meant to inspire you before your day begins and bring you closer to the Design Museum Portland community. Each event will include a short presentation by a local thought-leader, free breakfast, and great people to wake up with. These events are hosted and sponsored by various generous businesses of the Greater Portland area. If you are interested in hosting one of these events, please check out our host page for more information.

Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem

Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem is a workshop designed to help managers, teams, and leaders understand and manage change in their startups. This will be an interactive, practical session with overviews of established models, enlightening conversations, and activities for applying the models that hold strong in startups.

Let's be real, in a startup there is always a change happening! It's constant. And if employees can be more aware of the emotional and organizational implications of change, and have strategies and tools to help with these transitions, work will be smoother, and goals will be achieved quicker.

This workshop is designed for people managers of all levels, but can be beneficial for individual contributors and HR employees as well. Before the session, we'll ask you to think about a change you (and/or your team members) are actively experiencing, and come ready to discuss and work through this real-world scenario.
