As a social innovation designer, Sarah studies various issues and the connection with design, systems thinking, and socially innovative solutions. Through the examination of complex challenges, she aims to find the common approaches, elements, and philosophies among those working at the root causes of systemic challenges -- those working to solve these issues and not just manage or react to the symptoms. Sarah’s goal through this body of work is to build out the principles of Humane Capitalism, a kinder, more equitable economy model that can move us collectively towards a better future.
