RDI Pacific Northwest -Young Designers 

The RDI Pacific Northwest chapter is excited to host our first Young Designers event for the year!  We hope you can join us for a creative afternoon full of growth, inspiration and conversation!  
As an organization that aims to provide experienced experts and young talent the latest tools on industry insight and professional development, we are uniting both groups for this event.  

There will be 3 separate areas of focus for this event:

1. Snap + Capture - Get a professional headshot taken for all your social media channels.
2. Grow + Innovate - Ask questions and get career advice from industry professionals in a controlled speed format. 1:1 or 1:2 mentor/mentee ratio.
3. Explore + Ideate - Bring your portfolio or project and get feedback in a controlled speed format.
4. SPEED MINGLE - For attendees not involved in the career advice/portfolio review
