Project: Design and Technology as Tools for Collaboration
Design thinking acts as a platform for interdisciplinary skills and learning to create unique and relevant results. Elizabeth has continued developing and embracing design thinking as a way to expose herself and other women to the technology field. Through her positions with Challenge Detroit and WaitTime, Elizabeth has mentored current fellows, hosted graphic design workshops, and provided design templates, strategies, and insight. As the company developed, it became increasingly apparent that developing her technology skills would greatly benefit herself, WaitTime, and the nonprofits in Detroit with whom she works.
“I am currently investigating a multitude of platforms in which to expand and share these skills including workshops, boot camps, classes, and mentoring networks,” Elizabeth said.
