Hello. This is Kate.
I am a social design researcher.

McEntee Bug 1

I am passionate about learning from people. My work seeks to create increased awareness and social connection. My strength is taking on complex, challenging subject matters and facilitating understanding and applied results. I create communications for understanding like this, opportunities for engagement like this and this, and strategies for action like this.

Engaging in meaningful work that creates significant and sustainable change can feel impossible. Ambitious, talented people often become paralyzed and lose hope in the face of failures and  uncertainty. But through a patient and open exploration of powerful ideas, I believe we can make a difference. And we can be changemakers. To support and enable powerful ideas, my work embraces these principles:

  • Change is a process, and not a final solution.

  • Embrace learning the answers and not knowing the answers. 

  • Outcomes consider the individual and the larger system in which they act. 

  • Do not be limited to a single discipline. Uncover and integrate findings across disciplines.
