As the Vice President of Product at Sourcemap, Rhea tracks social, financial and environmental impact so her clients can make ethical, sustainable decisions. Her work is broad; she has to understand complex structures of every type of industry, from food to apparel. The mapping and critical thinking skills Rhea learned at DSI are part of her everyday work. Learn to be a design leader, see what a degree in social design can do for you.
