ADW20 Opening Event: Keynote & Happy Hour

Help us kick off the 5th annual Austin Design Week! We're starting off the week with a very special welcome from the ADW team. Then, we'll hear from Design Institute for Health Executive Director and former ADW Advisory Board Member, Stacey Chang on how design is solving for the issues of the day.

Stick around to connect with folks from the ADW community. We'll be chatting in small groups and will have prompts and an opportunity for you to meet one another.

BYOB to this virtual event. We recommend ordering an art and beer box with Hops for Hope.


Stacey Chang, Executive Director, Design Institute for Health

Stacey Chang serves as the executive director of the Design Institute for Health, a collaboration between the Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin. It is a first-of-its-kind institution, dedicated to applying design approaches to solving systemic health care challenges as an integrated part of a medical education and training program.

Working with invested stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem, and harnessing the resources of the university, the Institute is focused on creating human-centered solutions in every area of the patient and provider experience – all with a focus on improving people’s health outcomes and health care experiences.

Until 2014, Chang served as the managing director of the Healthcare practice at IDEO, the global design and innovation firm. Clients included governments, research institutions, hospitals, pharma, insurance, medtech, and all the upstarts trying to rewrite the script, in both established and emerging markets.

Chang holds a B.S. degree from MIT and an M.S. degree from Stanford University, both in engineering.
