Free and open to Emerging Professionals
Leadership Lunches let you learn about different firms’ work and culture, ask questions, and have real conversations with peers and other design professionals.
The BSA Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet) organizes Leadership Lunches every summer and are one of the most popular programs. These casual one-hour lunches provide emerging designers opportunities to visit firms in small groups and to engage in conversation with leadership about the firm’s work and culture.
This is an opportunity to sample different firm cultures, create connections for long-term mentoring, meet other future leaders, and learn about practice- and business-related topics first hand. There will be an opportunity for the audience to submit questions, which will be moderated by one of our EPNet members in order to facilitate the discussion.
As we slowly re-enter post-pandemic life and to continue safety protocols, Leadership Lunches will be held virtually for 2021.
Lunches will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM* in June.
