Through the use of online designer workshops and inclusive designer and project facilitator workshops, we help solve various problems companies face, such as new businesses, organizational development, and human resource development. As the leader of PLAYERS, a pro bono team made up of a diverse group of professionals, I am working on the implementation of &HAND, a service that matches those who require assistance, such as pregnant women and disabled people, with people around via LINE, and VIBLO, a project which seeks to reinvent tactile paving for the blind through new technologies.Leader of the PLAYERS and &HAND Projects / Part-time Lecturer at Tsukuba University Graduate School / Lecturer at Aoyama Gakuin University’s Workshop Designer Development Program
