IDSA's Executive Director, Chris Livaudais, took some time during IDC 2019 in Chicago to provide an update to membership on the state of the Society. We use this annual opportunity to share important information with membership in a public forum. The full presentation is shown in the video below. Highlights from this presentation include:
As an organization, IDSA has the unique opportunity to innovate within our industry by paving the way for thoughtful conversations and disruptive dialogues. We spend our careers building a better future for those around us, and the Women in Design Deep Dive, held in San Francisco on May 3, 2019, offered us the chance to build a better future for ourselves too.
The designers gathered in San Francisco were rehearsing the future of the industry—an industry of diverse perspectives and lived experiences with a powerful passion for bettering the world.

The Panel Discussion: The design Economy
Design is all around us and has been a driver of culture and trade. When we talk of 'design', thoughts and images that pop-up in our minds are mostly aesthetic in nature. However, the fuel that drives the engine of design is commerce. So, how can we approach the discussion of the economic impact of design? We are now stepping into 2017 and IDSA NYC presents a discussion regarding the economics of design from the point of view of panelists from the worlds of retail, design education, economic development, talent recruitment, and design consulting.
Questions we will address: How are businesses that are based on design doing in 2016? How has the nature of projects changed over the last few years and what can they expect going forward? Further, how is design education evolving? How is design impacting the economics of NYC and what can we expect to see in the future? What kind or remuneration can graduates and professionals expect from the world of design today?
