The Behavioral Insights Group presents Building Behavioral Design Teams for Public Good, a new series of talks with practitioners working in behavioral science units within governments and nonprofits to build and test solutions for social impact. This series will highlight how these units came about, how they work, and example projects.
This series forms part of the BIG Mentoring program. Through coaching and workshops, the program aims to build the participants’ capacity to establish behavioral design teams in their organizations that will leverage systems design thinking, behavioral insights, and innovative adaptive leadership frameworks in order to design more effective policies, programs, and services for complex social issues.
