Dinner follows the public event, "Youth, Design, and Juvenile Justice Reform," at 5:00 pm in Rocky 003.

Chris Rudd has worked with youth on the South and West Sides of Chicago, challenging them to engage with their communities through activism and technology. Rudd has helped youth from Chicago to the Bay Area design eight civic apps, including Expunge.io.

Rudd completed a year-long fellowship at Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the d.school). As a Civic Innovation Fellow, he spent a year immersed in graduate courses learning, applying, and honing his skills in the human-centered design methodology. Currently, Rudd is working with the Institute of Design at IIT and leading ChiByDesign, a Black-owned and people of color-led human-centered design firm. ChiByDesign believes that empowering the people who are directly affected by issues with the tools and mindsets of design thinking can unlock limitless creative and effective solutions.
