For this DesignPhiladelphia 2020 event, join the Weitzman School of Design for a virtual discussion about navigating your design career in the midst of uncertainty. How has the pandemic changed the design industry and how can we adapt and embrace these changes? Join our speakers, Lucinda Sanders (MLA’89), chief executive officer of OLIN and adjunct professor of landscape architecture at the Weitzman School, Jack Conviser (MCP'09), city planner at the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, Thabo Lenneiye (MArch'10, IPD'10), entrepreneur-in-residence at the New York edition of the VC-backed Accelerator, Carissa Lim (C’16 MPD’17), senior service designer at Kaiser Permanente, Innovation & Design, and Parker Murray (MPD’19), product designer at Tushy as they engage with these important questions. The talk will be moderated by Sarah Rottenberg, adjunct assistant professor and executive director of the Integrated Product Design Program at University of Pennsylvania, Weitzman School of Design. We hope to motivate and inspire designers entering the workforce as well as current designers preparing for the next chapter of their career.
