Check the highlights from our #collaborationrocks conversation on Twitter
Hoping folks are having a festive time out there! Here at OpenIDEO we continue to collaborate in the pursuit of social good and hope you'll find time to join us during the holiday season. Some of you have noticed our site outage before Christmas. Too offset this unfortunate event, we're offering to donate $10 for every concept added to our Workplace Wellness Challenge before January 1, 2013 to the International Diabetes Foundation. So be generous, get ideating and help fight diabetes – all at the same time! – over on our Workplace Wellness Challenge.
We've been excited to have 80 product design students join us on the Workplace Wellness Challenge with spirited participation. Check out this lowdown on their 2 week OpenIDEO Design-a-thon. Looking forward to having more students join us with such zest and zeal!
We've also just switched to Evaluation on our Connecting Communities Challenge. So it's time for you to join us to assess our Top 20 for impact and help us choose winners on this spirited challenge. The Refinement phase was particularly energetic – resulting in ideas being collaboratively evolved and built out. We're looking forward to transforming our shortlist to a hitlist and hope you'll be part of the process.
While our site was down last week, we turned to Twitter and asked people to let us know why they love collaboration – using the hashtag #collaborationrocks The response from our global community was awesome! If you're keen to catch up on the highlights, check out Collaboration Rocks And Here's Why curated by seasoned OpenIDEATOR, Arjan Tupan on Storify. As we head into the New Year, we hope you'll spare a toast for collaboration and look forward to seeing it thrive and multiply in 2013!
