Open Question

Introducing Open Question

A forum for commentary about solving social problems


Designing solutions to social problems is perplexing work that inevitably requires traveling an arduous path marked by pivots, hurdles, and far more questions than answers. In a deliberate effort to create editorial space for dispatches from this path, we have launched Open Question, a forum for commentary about social problems and methods of tackling them in the drive for progress.

This series of monthly articles offers a closer look at unresolved challenges, fresh perspectives, and new ways of working. Interested in contributing or sharing a story idea? Send a pitch to Kate Green Tripp.

Thanks for reading, sharing, and if you like, dropping us a line to urge an exploration of the open question(s) looming largest in your world.
