AIGA NY | Steps to Design Leadership

Monday, October 14, 2019 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Starr Foundation Hall, Room UL102, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Exactly how does one go about becoming a VP of Design? Or even a design manager or design lead?

Join us for an evening of conversation with design leaders, sharing their journey and how they got to where they are now.

We’ll talk about their decisive moment to become a design leader, the learnings acquired along the way, how they keep learning, and actionable steps on how you can carve your own path to design leadership.

Ariba Jahan, Director of Innovation at The Ad Council
Rachel Robbins, Head of Design at the Turing Advisory Group
Jinjin Sun, Senior Experience Designer at Adobe

This event will be moderated by AIGA NY board member, Lyanne Dubon-Aguilar, creative director at Etsy.
