DFC Leadership Summit on Design Education & Talent Strategies 2019

| University of Cincinnati; College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning

Talent is an important issue facing the A/E/C professions today. But how can the A/E/C industry remain relevant to today’s students … and tomorrow’s? How do we retain and train the leaders we already have? How do we develop new talent? What about succession plans?

These questions and more will be addressed at the DFC Leadership Summit on Design Education and Talent Strategies. Since the talent cycle begins in school and follows the arc of professional careers, we’ll talk about how educators and professionals can collaborate, brainstorm, and address ideas like talent shortages, talent opportunities, and talent cultivation across an organization’s most valuable asset—people.
