The purpose of the Buddy program is to help professional Design Leaders get inspiration, support & coaching by experienced leaders in the field. Our Buddy program is similar to a mentor program, but you coach and learn simultaneously. You will be matched with another professional from our network, but we encourage all our participants to use the community to connect, exchange ideas and experiences.
Do you need a Design Leadership Buddy?
The application period for the 21/22 Buddyship program is open, and we look forward to your application! In this year’s program we will offer around 15 couples a place. To apply for the programme you will need a formal leadership position, and you can choose between two orientations;
- Organizational Leadership (i.e. manager) or
- Team leadership (i.e. Team Lead)
The matching is then done within the two orientations and the specific focus areas that you are interested in (as far as possible).
If you are being offered a place there will be a fee for the program of 500 SEK covering material and guest speaker fees for our recurring meetings.
The program run once a year, starts in the fall and is facilitated by Jenny Fossum
