Design thinking: From ideas to impact

A YPAC Insights Series Event

Online registrations are now closed. For enquiries, please contact

Are you curious about design thinking? Perhaps you’re more familiar with the term ‘human-centred design’? Or maybe you simply want to ensure your work is focused on meeting community needs?

The IPAA WA Young Professionals Advisory Committee (YPAC) invites young professionals and those with an interest on the subject to a special breakfast event, to learn about design processes and mindsets that can uncover opportunities for innovation.
The event will consist of an introduction to design thinking, a panel discussion - where our panellists will share their diverse experiences and insights about using design thinking, and Q&A with the audience.

As with all YPAC events, this breakfast will also provide the opportunity to build your cross-sector networks with young professionals from across the WA public sector. 

Places are limited - please ensure you book early to secure your place!
