The Curious Company

Pam Scott is the founder of the Curious Company, a collective of scientists and creative professionals who specialize in making it easier for individuals to adopt new, beneficial beliefs and behaviors.

A designer by training, Scott is passionate about conducting research and developing solutions in and with communities. She has a sweet spot for leading multi-disciplinary collaborations that unlock the creative potential of groups and individuals – all with the purpose of developing radically fresh solutions to big, entrenched problems. She has been a thought partner to Nike, Levi’s, Unilever, and MINI Cooper, as well as (for which she serves as a founding board member), PSI, Stanford University and The Gates Foundation. She’s worked with marginalized communities and front-line NGOs domestically and around the globe. Most recently, Scott has been focused on in bringing the practice of Human Centered Design to address issues related to poverty in the United States.

Pam Scott frequently lectures about the intersection of design and social innovation, including engagements at the Aspen Institute, Clinton Global Initiative, Women Deliver, Harvard University’s Kennedy School and, for the past decade, Stanford D.School.
