Google has been praised as a fantastic place to work, and so much of that comes from establishing and maintaining a culture that promotes growth and supports excellence. In this deep-dive presentation, you will experience a small piece of how Google introduces a culture of innovation to Nooglers (i.e. new-Googlers). This session will take a hands-on approach to design thinking practices through the lens of a technology company. And, we will have some fun!
