Advancing the practice of design leadership.
This community is built for enterprise design leaders. There are 3000 members. Here’s a representation of who’s here:
“Face-to-face conversations are the best resources for growing as a design leader. The connections I’ve made here are real, the advice and anecdotes are fresh and relevant, and it’s been equally rewarding to offer some help in return.”
“The more I learn, the more I realize how much more there is to learn. Who better to learn from than design leaders who have been (and are still) in the trenches? The connections that will be made and relationships that will develop within this community will be priceless.”
Learn from the best
An inside view of the practices at high-functioning design teams and their solutions to common problems.
Speak in confidence
A chance to have candid, confidential conversations about issues that keep you up at night.
A chance to connect with a broad network of experts committed to helping fellow design leaders advance.
Best practices from the front lines
The opportunity to learn from veteran design leaders and industry influencers.
The Design Leadership Forum usually convenes at dinners, online events, a private slack community, community meetups, and at retreats that help members recharge while learning. Spending time together empowers us to connect and exchange ideas faster—and as a true community.
During the C-19 pandemic, the DLF will convene online in curated groups. Learn about the latest community insights in our public LinkedIn group.
