Minnie Bredouw is the executive director of The Purpose Project, a program incubated at IDEO that helps young people build agency and self-direction. She’s also an educator, teaching at both California College for the Arts and Copenhagen Institute of Design. Bredouw has spent the past decade designing programs focused on youth, equity and education reform, including a multinational reproductive health program for teens; a digital coaching platform to help first-generation college students succeed in higher education; and a program to help transitional-aged youth involved in the justice system learn about their rights to help prevent recidivism. Bredouw has spoken about these topics at the World Bank, United Nations, TEDx, the EdSurge conference and the World Design Summit. Her work has been featured in Bloomberg, Fast Company and by the World Economic Forum.
