Session Description

This session will explore how user centred design can be combined with advocacy strategy processes like stakeholder mapping and power analysis. We will walk through both processes and look at the key points where the methodologies can compliment and build upon each other. The audience for this session would be developers who are creating tools for social change efforts or advocates & activists who are wanting to employ tech tools in their campaigns.
