Event description

Hatch in collaboration with Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) is proud to present this breakfast event, that will certainly fire up your brain cells.

New challenges are transforming the way we do business in the mining industry: climate change, market volatility, rapid urbanization, and rising stakeholder expectations.  How might we use design thinking to tackle some of our industry’s major challenges? Design Thinking is a process for creative problem solving which starts with the needs of the person to ensure solutions are relevant.

Join us for a panel discussion on how Design Thinking is being used to unlock creativity, gain insights and bring meaningful people-centred solutions in the areas of service delivery, technology innovation and diversity. 

Light breakfast provided.
