The Collaboratory Zone facilitators, Barry and Claudia, are committed to growing a multigenerational design community with ongoing relationships amongst participants in CZ programs. Alumni are welcomed and encouraged to visit and contribute to future cohorts and programs. We believe that as the CZ community grows, so will opportunities for creative collaborations, internship and job announcements, special guest webinars, and more. In the future, we imagine yearly gatherings, or meetings co-located with particular conferences of interest (if you have a favorite conference let us know).
The CZ community values a #triplefocus: intrapersonal insight and mindfulness, interpersonal empathy and compassion, and big picture systems thinking.
