Due to the current unrest, we have decided to postpone our City Center Shuffle for one week.
As we find ourselves distracted and uncertain in these trying times, it is natural to start to question which areas of our lives are priorities and which areas are minor.
At first glance, IIDA may appear to fall in the latter category. However, I encourage you to look deeper.
Now, more than ever, the world needs strong, creative, compassionate leaders and we invite you to view IIDA as a path to develop yourself as such.
If you find yourself desiring to affect positive change right now, please consider tuning in next Thursday, June 11th, to our virtual City Center Shuffle to learn more about joining our leadership team and to hear more about our designLEAD initiative.
designLEAD is a leadership development initiative that is built on three pillars:
Our goal is to provide a safe space to develop our leadership skills. We are seeking individuals who are passionate about developing themselves and the profession of commercial interior design.
While planning IIDA programming may not seem world-changing, the skill set you are developing is necessary in order to affect change in any organization or community. Learning to lead with compassion, empathy and effectiveness are skills that you will carry with you wherever you go.
Further, let’s challenge ourselves to create programming that serves a greater purpose. How can our organization contribute to affecting positive societal change?
Together, we can design a better future and IIDA can serve as your stepping stone to a brave, new world.
