Building a Changing World: Leading through Influence - An Interactive Forum

CAPLA faculty, staff, students and alumni are encouraged to log in to participate in this event.

Transformation of the design and building industry is occurring at an accelerating pace—bringing us both challenges and opportunities resulting largely from decision makers in government and corporate boardrooms. As practitioners, faculty and students, how do we influence these decisions that fundamentally impact our economies, environments and societies?

CAPLA will explore that question at an online, interactive forum featuring DesignIntelligence’s Dave Gilmore, our Futures Council and the college community. Gilmore will provide unique insight as to where we have been, where we are right now and where he believes we are going relating to industry, the professions and the personal. He will examine five areas of “redefinition” that come with that change (values, value, priorities, leadership and effectiveness) and where we as students entering the profession, as educators and as practitioners may influence that change. We will then engage in a conversation with Futures Council members in virtual breakout rooms. Please register below to join us!
