Facilitated a 1-day workshop on diversity and inclusivity for TechExeter, using design thinking as a tool for a deeper understanding of the issues and a more sustainable process of addresssing them. Ideas for implementation included short, medium, and longer term actions.
We began with defining what we mean by these terms, and having an honest assessment of what currently happens at tech events in the area. We did a deep dive into personalities who might show up followed quickly by brainstorming. The result were a good number of steps that can be applied immediately, some that needed a bit more planning, and others that were longer term.
