It takes a deep and global network to really push back against inequality, and our amazing partners help us identify which challenges to tackle, lend their considerable expertise, and work tirelessly to bring the solutions we design to life. We’ve joined forces with a rich and diverse network of partners, from large-scale funders like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK Department for International Development, to emergent entrepreneurs, social enterprises, and boots-on-the-ground doers.
IDEO.org seeks to improve the lives of people in vulnerable communities through design. We look to design alongside people and partners who are equally focused on similar challenges.
People are at the center of every solution we design. From building empathy and uncovering insights to testing solutions out in the world, we believe that learning from the communities we're designing with is the best way to create real impact.
We want our partners to be as excited about tackling a design challenge as we are. Working on problems that fit squarely within a partner’s mission and strategy ensures that we’re equally invested and that our solutions have the greatest possible chance of success.
Solutions only count when they’re out in the world improving people’s lives. So in addition to having the right solution, we need the right team, resources, and systems in place to ensure the work gets to market, keeps evolving, and has measurable impact.
