Navigating Your Career Expedition

The closing event will be one part lightning talks, one part networking, and another part celebrating the end of the DCDW 2023 with the community.

It will kick off with a time of networking with light food and beverages. The main event then begins with five design leaders from the Washington, DC area with different backgrounds sharing how they navigated their career, how the pandemic affected their personal growth, and what action they took to advance in their career.

We’ll close the talks and discussion portion of the event and continue the networking and celebrate the end of DC Design Week 2023 with your community.


  • Hear five diverse design leaders share how they navigated their work with news skills they developed during the pandemic.
  • See what top decision-makers in our design communities believe helped propel their careers.
  • End DC Design Week on a high note, feeling inspired and more connected to your work and community.
