“To battle homelessness, one city came up with a controversial alternative to giving spare change to panhandlers.”
Mariana Amatullo, PhD ’15, was the featured speaker at “Innovation by Design for UNICEF: Winning approaches and emerging organizational practices in innovation” hosted by UNICEF’s Innovation Unit at UNICEF’s offices in New York this past July. Amatullo introduced the salient findings of her recent ethnographic case study of the UNICEF Innovation Unit and participated in a panel and Q&A with John Paul Stephens, PhD, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Weatherhead, and Manuel Toscano, faculty member for products of design in the School of Visual Arts and Principal for Zago. The panel focused on some of the practices that are converging today in many of the most dynamic innovation activities underway in UNICEF organizations.
