How to Solve Social Problems with Science: Impact Evaluation in Designing Programs

2 of 2 This webinar is the second in a two-part series, Webinar Series: How to Solve Social Problems with Science

This webinar will explore how we can use insights from behavioral science to advance methods of innovation in government and society. Its goals are to:

  • Map the current and emerging landscape of behavioral science in government
  • Highlight breakthroughs in scaling and institutionalizing behavioral science in government
  • Discuss case studies of the most common behavioral problems and solutions
  • Highlight promising governmental innovations from behavioral science addressing poverty, health, data-smart cities, and economic opportunity

The concluding part of this two-part webinar series is about the broader role of behavioral science in innovation and design. Speaker Ted Robertson will discuss case studies from ideas42’s behavioral design work with governments, including the mayoral offices of Chicago and New York (where ideas42 helped build the first city-based Behavioral Design Teams), and the Obama Administration’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Team (SBST). A guest speaker, Matt Klein, executive director of the Center for Economic Opportunity in the New York City Mayor’s office, will also join. This webinar will be highly relevant to those working in government and social innovation, including program designers, policy makers, funders, impact investors, product managers, UX and design practitioners, and organizational leaders.
