“Design Your Life” Workshop


Richie Ramrati H’18 and Cliff Chan facilitated a “Design Your Life” workshop based on the course created by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. The course is founded on the application of design thinking to address planning your life, goals, and career. Topics include the integration of work and worldview, the realities of engaging the workplace, and practices that support vocation formation throughout your life. If you are interested in future workshops and/or information on the program contact Richie at Richie.Ramrati@hws.edu .

“This was a very informative and much needed workshop. It brought up obvious questions that we don’t always consider when we reflect on our decisions, goals and values.” -German Veras H’ 17
