You know the old saying “a picture is worth 1,000 words”? It's why leading organizations such as Apple, Google, Nike, IBM, and Wal-Mart and universities, non-profits and governments are tapping into the power of visual thinking.

Join the Stanford GSB DC/Baltimore Chapter for an interactive workshop on visual thinking at the AARP's new innovation lab, The Hatchery. The workshop will be led by Caryn Ginsberg, MBA 1987.

This is the first event in our Chapter's new Peer Learning Series, which will feature events created and taught by alums for alums. If you would like a lead a future event in this series, please email
