About this event

Retaining Talent and Growing the Next Generation of Great Designers

Organized by: Austin Design Week

With 48% of professionals considering a job transition in this wave of “The Great Resignation,”design leaders are facing unique challenges to retain talent on their team. There is a flood of job postings and recruiter messages leading many designers to wonder about the potential for their career futures.

Join our panel of design leaders for insights on how these reputable design orgs are ensuring their teams have a professional home where they can aren’t simply “retained” but are growing, skilling up, and thriving in their careers.

Why do great designers stay in a role?

How can we stay competitive with the multitude of opportunities in the market?

How can we encourage our teams to grow their craft and expand beyond current limitations in our field?

This event is open to everyone.
