Associate Professor co-organizes first Ghana Design Thinking Conference

Dr. Gordon Adomdza is the lead faculty member of the Ashesi Design Lab (D:Lab), an initiative that harnesses Design Thinking and Design Making to assist students, faculty and corporations spur innovation in business, society, and policymaking. 

Gordon and the D:Lab co-organized an inaugural design thinking conference in Ghana. “The focus of the conference was to unearth local design thinking applications and also to expose the practice to a wider audience,” says Gordon. “Design Thinking is blowing through top business schools, companies and other budding organizations across the world, including Ashesi, so what we wanted to do was to bring together people who are doing design thinking work in Ghana to share and learn from one another.”
