Whitney Mapes

Student Fellow

Whitney Mapes is a graduate student in the Transdisciplinary Design program at Parsons School of Design, where she uses the design process as a way to understand and address complex, systemic social issues. Her thesis exploration looks at breaking down collective cultural narratives around immigration within the US that limit our ability to see alternative narratives and possible solutions. Prior to graduate school, she earned her B.S. from Stanford University and worked in research, data analysis, and strategy consulting across a range of different industries.
