Bianca Anderson

humanitarian Design summit coordinator

Bianca grew up normal and has dedicated the best part of the last decade to radical unjobbing and cultivating her curiosity about the world. She brings experience in appropriate technology development, Human Centred Design methodologies and social impact business development to the EWB team.

Bianca graduated from Deakin University with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and an appetite to expand the definition and boundaries of the field. Since she’s collaborated with the International Development Innovation Network – contributing to and coaching teams in appropriate technology development at the International Development Design Summit in Africa and completed a stint as an EWB Field Professional in India. Recently she completed her Master of Business Administration in Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise at Colorado State University, USA. At EWB she continues to sate her desire to expand the future of engineering through the Humanitarian Design Summit – facilitating budding engineers through experiential learning that increases their understanding of global challenges. She envisions a future of empathetic engineers, equipped with the understanding, adaptability and emotional resilience required to tackle the ever-complex challenges we will face in an uncertain future.

She also loves being far away from office-land; usually rockclimbing, hiking in the bush or gaining skills to eventually run away and join the circus.
