During six half-day online workshop sessions participants, working in teams of 5 to 6 members, were taught the Design Thinking process and implementation tools.
The workshops started out focusing participants on deep-diving into understanding the challenges that the organisation was facing.
At the end, after an intensive period of researching, ideating, prototyping and iterating, the teams came back online to present their findings and pitch their ideas.

For many of these participants, design thinking paved a new way for them to create solutions to real problems. They see purpose in their work. There was appreciation for the opportunity for a myriad of individuals to come together to work for a common cause.
