Designers’ pathways are growing ever more diverse. The structure of the creative workplace is shifting. Access to sophisticated design tools is growing. As design students become design professionals, they face the kinds of opportunities that are, in themselves, reshaping the profession and our built environment.

In this series of public events, Susan S. Szenasy, editor-in-chief of Metropolis Magazine and renowned design scholar, will invite a select group of recent Parsons SCE alumni and young design professionals to discuss their experiences starting out in the design world, how they have adapted and learned to thrive. 

Reception to follow.

This event is sponsored by the School of Constructed Environments Public Programs.
