AIGA Minnesota is thrilled to announce the return of EMERGE, designed to engage emerging designers. The program continues its aim to provide designers who are 0–5 years into their careers after graduation with customized events, experiences, and content that will advance their career paths and create tangible opportunities.

EMERGE is powered by AIGA Minnesota’s third AIGA Innovate grant, awarded in July 2017. Through a pivotal partnership with AIGA’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force, the objective during this next development phase is to grow and expand EMERGE to reach new, more diverse audiences, existing members, and prospective members. EMERGE will address each participating chapter and community’s needs in key areas of employment, growth, leadership, entrepreneurship, and life skills—as well as provide inclusive strategies that enable underrepresented groups and give all emerging designers the opportunity to flourish.
