Members connect with industry leaders through RGD webinar program

RGD's fall webinar line-up features insights on research methods, accessible design, motivation, management and more, including a new student-focused series, "3 Things I Didn't Learn In School". 


Every Wednesday, RGD invites industry experts from across North America and beyond to share their insight and experience with our members. This fall, we host speakers from diverse backgrounds covering a wide range of topics with content compiled to benefit designers from all disciplines and all levels of the industry. 


"The RGD's webinar series has been a great resource for me during my maternity leave," says Halifax-based RGD Deanne Loft. "For one hour every week I am inspired by industry leaders, and leave every session grateful and excited to be a part of this diverse community."
