The Design Thinking Social is hosting a human-centered design workshop focused on diversity and taking action. Our goal is to bring people together to tackle the design challenge of "how could we create a product or system to better support people of color in Austin's tech scene?"

We'll kick off with an introduction from The Design Thinking Social, dive into a workshop led by Nina Ho and Paula Nguyen, and end with attendees sharing their takeaways. This is an inclusive event and all are welcome to participate! However, this is an intentional and safe space created for minorities by minorities, and we ask that all attendees are mindful of this coming in. Hope to see you there!

The Design Thinking Social brings together a diverse group of stakeholders from Austin's Tech Ecosystem to discuss crowdsourced topics on diversity and inclusion with the goal of developing solutions and best practices to move Austin towards equity and justice. Our socials have developed into a supportive community and roadmap for underestimated entrepreneurs to utilize as they enter the tech scene. Everyone is welcome; so come join us.

We wanted to build a community. A place you join as an individual, 'me', but where you become part of a greater 'we'. A place where we're redefining success measured by personal fulfillment, not just the bottom line. Community is our catalyst.
