The Design Museum is pleased to announce the Leadership Luncheon: Building a Pipeline for Future Design(ers), presented by Tarkett, hosted by Workflow, and featuring special guest speakers committed to design education.

The luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 30, from 11:30am–2pm EST, convening designers, educators, and creatives to celebrate design, social innovation, and a shared commitment to future designers. The Leadership Luncheon will also help raise the remaining funds needed to launch the Student Advisory Council and Mentorship Program this fall. This program will convene college-age students through design and social impact, mentorship, and professional development with design leaders during the critical period in which they are preparing to enter the workforce.

We hope you will join us! Members and Organizational Partners receive discounted tickets to the luncheon. If you have not received the promotional code to access Member/Partner-priced tickets or with questions about sponsorship, please email Liana Mestas, Deputy Director, at liana@designmuseumfoundation.org.
