Girls in Tech, an organisation focused on the empowerment, entrepreneurship, engagement, and education of women in technology, is proud to announce that it is bringing a new 2-day event, the Design Thinking Bootcamp, to Gibraltar. The bootcamp will take place on the weekend of the 6-7 October, 2018.
This two-day bootcamp is designed to teach participants how to reframe problems and opportunities and expand their ideas about how to work, innovate and think.
During this bootcamp, attendees will learn how to define a problem clearly and take on fresh perspectives to view it in a new light. They will also learn how to move from divergent to convergent thinking and filter ideas down to the best ones. Participates will be taught how to design concept boards to test and iterate solutions and focus on the growth and development of ideas, and most notably learn how to reframe their mindset around how to solve problems using tested and established frameworks.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to bring this new event to our community in Gibraltar” says Peter Mares, Co-Managing Director of Girls in Tech Gibraltar. “The bootcamp has been designed from the ground-up by Girls in Tech global and is exclusively available to the Girls in Tech local chapters. We believe that it is important to create opportunities for learning and growth for our community and this bootcamp fits perfectly towards addressing that goal”.
All Girls in Tech events are all-inclusive, meaning that both women and men are welcome to attend.
The event will have limited seating hence an application form is available on Girls in Tech Gibraltar’s social media channels for people who are interested in attending to sign up on (or use this link directly: https://goo.gl/forms/WiESJ6Rh49kPw7Es1).
