The world’s leading businesses are discovering that in a rapidly changing world the transformative power of design is a vital element of corporate strategy. Design is critical to a company’s ability to meet the urgency of the moment we live in. Design shapes everything from the type of goods and services a company provides to an organization’s ability to build lasting customer and community relationships. Design also places essential emphasis on how a business recruits and develops diverse talent and can help structure inclusivity within the organization.
For the first time, Fortune’s Brainstorm Design franchise comes to the United States with our in-person event at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge on September 20–21. Together, we’ll explore design-led strategies to navigate the complex forces shaping the future of business; furthering discussions on how design can help leaders embed equitable business practices, empower diverse talent, bridge business and social value, and drive customer-centric transformation in a digital-first world. The agenda will be interactive and ensure that you’ll have the chance to meet and learn from like-minded attendees.
