Introducing our Resident Team

Sofia Dias is the lead designer at Raia Miúda, blending future insights and strategic thinking to make them accessible to a broader audience. With a deep love for art, she integrates the concept of hope into the creative process, encouraging innovation. Sofia values divergent thinking and questions established norms, influencing her decision not to submit her completed Ph.D. thesis. Instead, she focused on decolonizing her project to inspire hope in those willing to engage.
In addition to being an educator, Sofia has a background as a consultant and mentor, with years of experience in trend forecasting in Portugal and Spain. She also led a postgraduate program in Barcelona. After the pandemic, Sofia shifted her focus towards more purpose-driven work, realizing the importance of making future literacy more widely available.
Sofia is contemplating writing a book to share her insights. She manages the digital platform DREAM IT • MAKE IT, aiming to offer innovative and strategic experiences. Her approach is grounded in practicality, seeking to democratize access to forward-looking perspectives.
