      EVENT DETAILS
      Veronika Scott: "From Product Designer to Social Activist to Non-Profit CEO"

      Free Admission. An FSU Arts and Lectures event.

      Veronika Scott, “2016 CNN Hero,” and winner of the Industrial Design Society of America’s IDEA Gold Award and a “JFK New Frontier” Award winner, will share how a design project during her college years at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies led to her design of a waterproof, heat retaining jacket for homeless people that converts to a sleeping bag. Scott not only engineered the design, but started a non-profit -- The Empowerment Project -- employing homeless women who receive job training to find steady employment, stable housing and break the cycle of poverty.
