FOR OUR ANNUAL COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT BENEFITING POSITIVE TOMORROWS!

Please see the Merry Market 2019 list provided by Positive Tomorrows to use as a shopping guide for donation items needed.


Positive Tomorrows began in 1989 as a collaborative effort of community organizations that recognized the educational needs of homeless children were not being met.  Founding partners included Oklahoma City Public Schools, the State Department of Education, Campfire USA, Neighborhood Services Organization and the YWCA. As an affiliate of the OKC Public School System, our purpose was to help homeless  families collect needed documentation to enroll their children into a public school.  From our founding  until 2006, that was what we did.  Then, a change in the Federal Grant guidelines  caused us to become ineligible for government funding. While many of our students still came from the OKC Public Schools, we were no longer formally affiliated.  Today, Positive Tomorrows is a private, tuition-free  elementary school meeting the educational needs and social service needs of homeless children and their families!

Confuse me too and the Content Services Mystery


SPEAKER: Elisa Munoz,  Design Thinking, Data & Information
Management Strategy,  Knowledge Management - Williams

Description:
A mystery is something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain, but Elisa
Munoz can help us solve our Mysteries while we impersonate Scooby Doo characters in
her brand new version of “Confuse me too.”  Come, interact and learn creatively with Elisa
as she explains the contradictions that we face in small and large corporations, not only to
understand how our discipline and technology changes, but how we need to pull from the
Designers tool kit to gain experiential understanding of what is the content and technology
that everybody needs to access on a daily basis.

About the Speaker:
Elisa has over 20 years combined experience leading design thinking, strategy, product management, and user experience (UX) to solve business problems in the business to business (b2b) and business to consumer (b2c) digital space.  Her work within the oil and gas arena focuses on creating a sustainable framework for asset records management and consumption.  As a proven leader of creative teams, effective transformation of UX for employee facing portals and process enabling applications becomes reality.

Elisa’s experience includes frequently facilitating consulting engagements, training and pitching on the value of UX, designing information architectures, products and solutions. Her previous roles have required her to lead and facilitate product presentations at sales
conferences, lead design envisioning sessions, and provide creativity and multimedia instruction.
