Local Spotlight: Women Design Build
For the latest conversation in our local spotlight series, we sat down with Christina Mirando of Women Design Build (womendesignbuild.org) to talk about their approach to learning and knowledge sharing.
Here’s an excerpt from the chat where Christina talks about what is unique about their program:
What’s unique about these programs is that we’re very collaborative. We bring together local leaders and partners and all of those individuals and organizations bring something new to the table. In that knowledge sharing space it’s so highly collaborative, because we’re always learning something new and all the participants are bringing something new to the table as well, so everyone is becoming a leader and a teacher in some way.
I really love the way Christina talks about leaders and learners throughout the interview. The idea that everyone has knowledge to contribute and share is something we strongly believe here at HourSchool.
Check out the video below to hear one of their great success stories, and to learn more about what Women Design Build does:
