01apralldayalldayLeadership by Design: Using Design Thinking to transform your Career


Event Details

Work spaces are vastly different than they were 10-20 years ago. Being a woman in science in today’s workforce means you possess characteristics, behaviors, and the mindset that will allow you to become a leader in unpredictable, fast-moving, and value-charged conditions.

We call these leaders “DEOs” — design executive officers — because they are a hybrid of strategic business executive and creative problem-solver. These leaders are not necessarily trained designers or in design positions. They are catalysts for transformation and agents of change. In this workshop, learn not only why this form of leadership is essential to the success of modern organizations, but also what characteristics are common to creative business leaders. Identify these skills in yourself and how to use them to propel your career.
