Description


WHAT IS #THINKLIKEASTARTUP?
This session will be facilitated by Thomas K.R. Stovall (Twitter: @ThomasKRStovall), utilizing his proprietary #ThinkLikeAStartup Challenge/Solution Think Tank format. Think Like A Startup 90 minute "Think Tanks" and "Own Your Narrative" trainings are facilitated for large enterprises, educational institutions, impact organizations and associations.

Leading global corporations such as The Clorox Company and CDW Corporation have brought Thomas in to facilitate his #ThinkLikeAStartup Think Tank with their teams, to quickly crowd-source the top challenges and most compelling, actionable solutions that the company could implement immediately.


WHAT IS THE #DANDITHINKTANK?

Think Like A Startup :: Cracking the Code on Diversity and Inclusion in Chicago Tech, is a 90 minute “think tank” style workshop. #DandIThinkTank brings together startup founders, investors, tech executives, tech professionals, students, and other stakeholders in Chicago's tech ecosystem for a CANDID working session.

In 90 minutes, we work together, inside the TLAS format, to identify and align on the THREE most impactful, measurable solutions that could be implemented immediately, to begin to deal with the top challenge that the stakeholders in that room identify that Chicago's tech ecosystem is facing, as it relates to D&I. The manufactured environment is designed with time constraints and unexpected changes to group dynamics, and thus forces participants to quickly identify, categorize, prioritize and crowd-source identification of problems and solutions as one cohesive team.



WHO IS "CRACKING THE CODE ON D&I IN CHICAGO TECH" FOR?

  • Founders of emerging tech startups
  • Investors in Chicago's tech ecosystem
  • Executives in technology focused companies in Chicago
  • Professionals working in technology focused companies in Chicago
  • Students in an area university
  • Other stakeholders in Chicago's technology ecosystem (advisors, press, civic leaders, etc)
