NYC Service Design Studio Fellowship Webinar
NYC Service Design Studio

The Service Design Studio in the Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity helps further the City’s use of human-centered design methods. Our approach begins by trying to understand the needs of people who use and oversee public services, and designing the service to meet those needs. With that knowledge, our team works with City agency partners to shape services that are effective, user-friendly, sustainable, and scalable. A design fellowship with our team is an opportunity to grow expertise in creating public services to help improve the lives of millions of New Yorkers. In this webinar, our current Fellows will be discussing the Studio's work, what we look for in candidates, and the application timeline. If time permits, there will be a Q&A at the end.
