Educator Well-Being Summit: Addressing Barriers Using Design Thinking



The purpose of this summit is to bring together education experts and practitioners with experience working within and beyond systems, with networks and professional resources that enable action at nearly all levels of the ecological systems surrounding schools. The goal of this summit is to create (a) a comprehensive list of common barriers school systems face that both contribute to poor well-being and prevent amelioration, (b) actionable steps that individuals beyond the summit group could engage in for their own school districts, (c) draw upon the unique knowledge, skills, and resources of the summit attendees to engage in for their local systems to test strategies and tactics, and (d) form a coalition of individual actors for ongoing support in making those changes.  




This accredited continuing education activity is designed for social workers, psychologists, and counselors.




At the end of this activity, learners from clinical and learning environments will be better able to: 

  • Apply the process of design thinking and its application in creative problem solving.  
  • Describe the liberatory design mindset and modes for diversity, equity, and inclusion.   
  • Create a design thinking framework that focuses on the “end user” with innovative solutions.
