Our People


At IDEO, we believe that innovation happens through networks of inspired people, and we consider our community to be one of our strongest assets. With a network that includes NGOs, foundations, nonprofits, government entities, and public health groups — as well as people affiliated with academic institutions such as Stanford University and the Royal College of Art — IDEO is able to collaborate at scale and effect meaningful change faster and more systemically than those who go it alone. IDEO also maintains a fellowship program for a handful of influential thinkers and practitioners who contribute to our culture of innovation.

In Memoriam

“Few people think about it or are aware of it. But there is nothing made by human beings that does not involve a design decision somewhere.” —Bill Moggridge
