Hi, y'all! My name is Tito Ponce I'm a tech-savvy, detail-oriented leader in project management who thrives in the place where insight and play meet. I'm motivated by community building and positive social change and inspired by human-centered design and the divine mundane. In this workshop you'll learn the process of “design thinking” by playing a game! In teams, you will come up with creative solutions to aspects of some of the world’s trickiest problems. You will discover that resource constraints can inspire innovation, teamwork is required, and evaluation can improve design. You will learn how to present ideas, and — most importantly — that innovation is more of a process than a lightbulb. Follow @RootedGood on socials! We're on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, & LinkedIn.
