Reimagining the future of work through thoughtful architecture & design

** This event has two ways to participate: in-person attendance or via Zoom. You will indicate the way you plan to participate when selecting your ticket.

Morning Consult’s new offices were designed to work in harmony with the company’s innovative hybrid work model. They set out to make their offices as flexible as home — while making remote workers an inclusive part of office culture.

Join Jeighdeane King (Associate Vice President, Head of Spaces & Facilities, Morning Consult), Vince Wanga (Vice President, Head of Creative, Morning Consult), and Jessica Maples (SE Tech Practice Leader, Gensler) in an informative and engaging conversation on the future of work.

Learn how Morning Consult leveraged thoughtful architecture and design to allow team members maximum flexibility on where and how they work through embedded flexible seating, an intentional lack of formal offices, private locker systems, technology-enabled collaborative spaces, hospitality-inspired wayfinding, a clean desk policy, and a plethora of open and private workspaces. This may change how offices function in the future.

Light refreshments will be provided for in-person attendees.

This event was put together in partnership with Morning Consult.

In-person safety guidance

In-person attendance will be at Morning Consult's office, for those who select an In-Person Add-On with their ticket:

1025 F St., NW, 8th Floor, Washington, DC 20004

All in-person attendees must be vaccinated. We recommend that attendees wear masks when not eating or drinking.

COVID-19 is hard to predict: What happens if in-person events need to be canceled?

When possible, in-person events will be moved to Zoom and a refund should not be expected. If an event is canceled in its entirety, a refund will be issued. In either scenario you will be notified immediately.

How to prepare

  • All in-person attendees must be vaccinated.
  • We recommend that attendees wear masks when not eating or drinking.
