We’ve teamed up with our friends at Visa to create a second edition of the Mentorship Program exclusively for the Bay Area community. We’ve tweaked the selection process and created a new series of events that will differ from the previous program. If you want to spark inspiration, learning and professional growth within our design community, or if you are looking to take things to the next level, gain advice, or make a career move—we invite you to apply to this program! Partners set their own goals and guidelines for building the relationship. As a guideline, our mentoring partners strive to meet in person once a month for hours – six times during the course of the program and keep in contact by email regularly. Attendance: We will host monthly receptions as well as a wrap-up party, where you can meet other participants, mix with top Bay Area talent, and share progress as you navigate through this program. Applicants accepted into the program are expected to participate with one-on-one mentoring sessions and online meetings or group gatherings, post-COVID
AIGA Early Career Mentorship Program
With the help of chapters across the country, the AIGA community is activating our Women Lead goals—to celebrate, cultivate, and connect —locally as well as nationally. Our events include a wide range and diverse group of women working in design who come together to share knowledge and networks. We will have food and drinks throughout the evening. November 28, AIGA San Francisco Prototyping Gender Equity Fuseproject is pleased to host a panel discussion that poses questions related to the current professional climate, particularly as it relates to women pursuing a career in the field of design.
What are some of the implicit boundaries? In the midst of ongoing progress, how are new paths forged, what are the rules still in place, and which have yet to be established?

Can students from design schools try to come up with ideas to help address homelessness in the city? The results were recently unveiled at the Main Museum downtown. The three full-scale prototypes and a number of miniature models were the work of students completing a two-term studio project with James Meraz, a professor of environmental design at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.
They said the goal is to address some of the most common misconceptions about immigration. As officials scramble to approve sites for the others, students at the ArtCenter College of Design have been rethinking how future pop-up developments might look.

Mentoring is a rewarding way to get involved with AIGA; meet fellow and communicate with one another during Venue-Creator Matchmaking.
And just like apprentices in welding, carpentry and plumbing, designers spent years looking over the shoulder of a master to learn the necessary skills, like paste-up, typesetting and hand lettering. Landing a job required patience, dedication and schlepping a hefty leather portfolio to dozens of offices. No more. You can download Adobe Creative Suite and learn all its tricks and shortcuts by watching tutorials on lynda. You might even get a job on the strength of your social-media presence.
Two reasons come to mind. The relationship flourished: the two met every week or two, had deep conversations about managing supervisors and shaping portfolios, attended design talks, and visited new coffee shops to vent about their workdays. When Blackman left that first job to transition into user experience UX design, she eagerly volunteered to become a mentor herself. Every January, dozens of junior- and senior-level designers fill out short, detailed questionnaires to facilitate the matchmaking process.
Over the course of four months, as many as 40 designers meet as a larger group three times, and in pairs every week or so. The ultimate goal is to foster a relationship that goes beyond simple cheerleading.

This webinar was divided into two sessions and started off with the startups. The startups in the Baltic countries are very similar and they are fast-paced businesses with a strong will to develop themselves even faster. The speakers from Latvia revealed the latest statistics about the startup ecosystem in Latvia — the growing speed of the ecosystem, collaboration opportunities, and other valuable statistics.
As per participants, the webinar gave a broader understanding of the Baltic countries and their working structure.
The program kicks off in the fall and gives professionals the chance to make a difference in the life of an ambitious young artist. We are accepting applications for the school year. The application deadline has been extended to Wednesday August 29th. Often, mentors and students form lasting bonds and remain in contact after graduation. How are mentors selected, screened and trained? Potential mentors are required to attend a three-hour training and orientation session, where they receive intensive training, participate in role playing and are fingerprinted.
Personal and professional references must also be provided by the prospective mentor. Mentors are encouraged to meet with the program coordinators to ensure appropriate pairings. What is the time commitment? Once matched, the mentor is expected to make a time commitment of meeting with the student one hour each week or two hours bi-weekly, for a total of four hours a month. The mentor is also asked to make a year-long commitment to the program and to participate in an evaluation process.

Welcome to the tumblog for AIGA Jacksonville, the professional association for design in Jacksonville, and a cool little place to capture little design nuggets. With 14 venues and nearly 50 artists, onlookers and art-walkers really got to enjoy quite a variety of artwork at our stations. All proceeds from the work went to our Discover Design high school mentoring program which was suiting, as local students were out and about examining work that they liked, and some were even required to have their favorite artists sign a worksheet for an in-class assignment.
Overall, the night went off with amazing work thanks to our atomic-sketchers! We hope to see you out at our next Atomic Sketch event, so stay tuned and look out for more bomb work! Mapping our minds at the second session of DiscoverDesign!
AIGA DFW’s Virtual Mentor Matchmaking event is designed to connect you with seasoned professionals that can help you navigate your career.
As a recent graduate, I went on Linkedin to seek career advice and mentorship. Therefore, I invited my friend as well as a product designer, Fangzheng Zhu, to start this 4-week exploration with me. Examining the feature through the lenses of desirability, viability, and feasibility, we started with questions like: Are we solving the right pain point?
Are we strengthen the foundation of the company and the competitive advantage of the business? Are we contributing to long-term growth? Besides, based on the strong connection analysis ability Linkedin already have, implicit and explicit user input through mentorship feature can be fed to machine learning with more nuances.

Who — Who will make a good match? What — What are people struggling with right now? What do people enjoy most? When — Does the cadence matter? How does duration play in?
