DesignThinkers Series Webinar: What Are We Doing With Our Seat at the Business Table?

Presented by Farah Assir, Vice President of Design & Strategy at Meetup


Date: Thursday, October 15th at 12:00 p.m. EST


Now that designers have the proverbial seat at the table, what have we done with it? What are the unique skills that we have at our disposal that we might not think to use inside the confines of our job descriptions? Designers have the ability to partner with other disciplines to solve real user problems and ultimately change the future of a company. Let’s explore the opportunities we have to bring design activities to the centre of an organization, as well as the pitfalls that might keep us from those taking advantage of those opportunities.
