Why this program?

We designed this interactive workshop to support any motivated product designer or UX researcher in their career growth. It is a stepping stone to help build their career with intention. We all want to become high performers, and excel in our careers. But what does that really mean? What does a an intentional and successful design career even look like? How do know you are on the right track?

In this workshop we will be discussing best practices and career growth tactics with our special guest Fonz Morris. He will share his learnings and techniques on designing his career through entrepreneurship, being a first design hire, working at startups as well as tech giants such as NETFLIX. Fonz will also discuss why honesty and tenacity are key to a successful career.

RETHINK programs gave me great insight into the next steps of my career, as well as many resources to help carry me through the next few months. I feel like I left the program with exactly what I needed - a plan to upgrade my career over the next few years.
