Higher education on its own is rarely enough to provide emerging designers with the confidence and resources to jump-start their career dreams. Behind every successful designer, there is a story about a mentor or teacher that had a major impact on their design journey. At this digital event, viewers will learn about the value, demands, and rewards of mentoring from a panel of professionals. Attendees will also hear how participating as a mentor or mentee can benefit anyone at any stage of their career.
