[A] two-year collaboration between Stanford University and Sustainable Harvest culminates this week with the launch of a new on-campus executive course titled, “Leadership and Design Thinking: Drive change in your organization.”

Experts Pamela Matson, former dean of Stanford’s School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, and Julia Novy-Hildesley, professor in the Change Leadership for Sustainability program, will lead the two-and-a-half-day seminar in Palo Alto, California. The training is geared toward the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs looking to employ the tenants of design thinking and sustainability.

Matson and Novy-Hildesley will be joined by leading experts, including Sustainable Harvest founder and CEO David Griswold, who will be leading a session titled, “Relationship Coffee: Designing Business through Partnerships and Collaboration.”

“Infusing sustainability and design thinking into the heart of business has the power to overcome some of the greatest barriers to global well-being,” says Novy-Hildesley. “To do so, we must inspire the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs with lessons and models from pioneering change agents like Sustainable Harvest.”
