Design leadership: Taking the leap
Whether you’re an individual contributor transitioning to a manager position, an aspiring thought leader, or simply looking to earn your team’s trust and respect, becoming an effective design leader requires patience and dedication. Join us for a panel discussion with four women that have successfully handled this transition. Each will reveal the challenges they’ve faced, the skills they’ve found helpful, and their advice for anyone interested in influencing change in the design community — and beyond!
