Students in India participating in a design thinking workshopDDQIC joined Undergraduate Recruitment on visits to key recruitment markets in Spring 2023 to deliver Design Thinking workshops and micro-credentials to youth. Design Thinking is a problem-solving methodology leveraged by Forbes 500 companies and entrepreneurs to develop innovative products, services, and impactful solutions. The Queen’s micro-credential enhances students' career resumes and complements their applications to post-secondary.

DDQIC delivered workshops at 3 schools in Vietnam and India. Students were challenged to develop and validate a solution to a problem that could be the basis of a business venture. Following the outreach, several high schools in China, India, and Vietnam are interested in deepening their collaborations with Queen's by having their students participate and compete in the Future Leaders Initiative.
