Katherine is a Senior Service Designer at Sopra Steria, where she supports Government organisations to navigate change and complexity. She is an interdisciplinary designer with a background in Design Anthropology, Design Research, and Product Design. Her focus lies in exploring the process from strategy to reality: developing bespoke project-specific tools to enable individuals or organisations to engage with possible futures. Katherine has worked with start-ups, Higher Education, the private and public sector.
Jana is a Junior Service Designer at Disclosure Scotland. After earning a bachelor degree in Product Design Jana found her way to Disclosure Scotland where she tried many hats and developed passion for safeguarding and improving public services. This ultimately led her to kick start her career in Service Design and work on creating sustainable public services that align with user needs.
Kirsty is a lead service designer in the Scottish Government where she works on democratising design skills, right now for those connected to children’s social care services. Her personal and professional interests in mentoring led her to co-found mega mentor in 2020. With 150+ design mentors, its aim is to increase diversity in design leadership.
