About this Event

Design is everything — so how do we deepen its impact to create more equitable workplaces and communities for women in Nebraska?

Free and open to all genders and fields of work, this four-part workshop series partners with community leaders in women’s rights to confront four different challenges women face. Using design thinking and social ecology theory, you’ll address these dilemmas with a small team you’ve never met, limited resources, and additional problems thrown in along the way, emerging with a greater perspective on how to create gender equity in Nebraska and beyond.

Cash donations to WCA Omaha or supplies will be accepted at the door. Greatest needs include diapers, pull-ups, formula, wipes, women's clothing, luggage, backpacks, totes, socks, new undergarments, deodorant, shampoo, no-perishable microwave meals, and non-perishable snacks.

To provide space for effective dialogue and takeaways, this workshop is limited to 30 spots.
