Session Abstract (150 words): 

There is growing interest in the social sector in ways to use design thinking to improve programs and systems by putting constituents and beneficiaries at the center. Journey mapping is a powerful tool to analyze and understand how people experience and interact with programs, services, and systems.  It can also shed light on gaps and opportunities as well as re-image what an ideal experience might look like. Using two case examples – a systems change planning process and a developmental evaluation - this demonstration will explore how journey mapping can be used to engage stakeholders and constituents in new ways, shed light on opportunities and barriers to progress and tell a visual story about how beneficiaries experience and interact with services or systems.  Journey mapping helps beneficiaries share their perspective and brings a human-centered lens to our efforts to strengthen outcomes in the social sector.
