Elevating Impact Stories: Kazi Huque
Leading up to the Elevating Impact Summit on June 21, we’ve invited event speakers and panelists to engage in a storytelling project. We believe that storytelling is an essential part of effective social innovation. How can we tell stories in a way that generates interest and creates connections? How can we listen to the stories of others with the empathy needed to achieve true understanding? We hope that by sharing stories of failure, transformation and success, you’ll learn more about our speakers and the promise and challenges of social innovation around the world.
Kazi Huque answers the question, “What lessons has your work taught you?” with a story of designing technology services for the poor in Bangladesh:
“You come up with creative solutions when you’ve internalized other people’s perspective.”
