"What can you bring to the workplace that would give you the power to be the fierce leader you need to be?”
The discussion at our sixth Women in Design event centered around "women working together". We asked 10 design leaders from companies like Adobe, Facebook, Netflix, and Pinterest how they create positive environments for female designers, and in particular, how colleagues can collaborate in this realm.
"Companies that had strong answers to these questions were better at recruiting great people, at getting employees to invest extraordinary time and energy, at getting exceptional PR, and many other key advantages that impact returns."
DF co-founder Ben Blumenfeld shares some lessons from Designer Fund Fund I around how discussing impact and ethics can drive returns AND help us all invest in companies worth building.
The design tool expansion has come at a cost. Designer Fund co-director Ben Blumenfeld shares why he believes toolmakers should embrace a set of principles that will not only improve their tools, but also improve the design tool ecosystem at large to make it cohesive, accessible, and more powerful.
