Jason Schupbach, Director of Design from the National Endowment for the Arts who moderated the real estate panel said, "Serving as a panel moderator at Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! opened my eyes to what's happening in the field of humanitarian design today and the intersections between commercial and not-for-profit development. The panelists spoke to some of the most pressing issues facing the field."
