DFC Leadership Summit on The Future of Talent

Dallas, TX | April 11-12, 2023

Begins at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, April 11 and ends at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 12.

The AE professions have continued to make breakthroughs that astound the imagination and bring tremendous value to human society. As we progress into the near and intermediate futures, the question of talent and technology converging to create new outcomes for these professions comes front of mind.

The DFC will be gathering in Dallas, TX on April 11-12 to discuss the future of talent.

The primary themes will be:

  • The Resourcing of Talent from the Academy
  • The Attraction, Development and Retention of Talent in the Professions
  • Compensation, Recognition and Rewards for this new future

This gathering is specifically arranged for talent leaders in HR and Design Studios as well as Deans and Faculty leaders from A/E programs.

Join us to elevate this conversation into the future.
