Design Your Return / Women Back to Work by AKRAYA
Take The Lead prepares, develops, inspires and propels women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions. We offer women in all sectors the breakthrough tools, trainings, mentoring and coaching, role modeling, and thought leadership needed to change their relationship with power and achieve their personal, professional and organizational goals, individually and collectively. These are comprehensive solution-based workshop for women that teaches them how to identify problems and change systems as well as succeed in the world.
As a human centered designer by training, I bring problem solving design skills to these trainings. My efforts are focused on using design thinking strategies to collaboratively solve leadership challenges for women. The goal is to tap into the group’s collective experience and wisdom to solve real life career challenges submitted by participants. The outcome is usually a deep sense of connection among participants, empathy for each other’s struggles and host of ideas on how to tackle personal career challenges generated by the cohort.
San Francisco Design Week is the largest design festival on the West Coast. From tech inventions to culture changing products, human centered design, emerging fashion to international architecture, San Francisco Design Week is an opportunity to experience the regions unique design talents, impact and innovations.
