The IIDA Leaders Breakfast is an annual international event series that celebrates design’s importance in the global market place by honoring the people who are both the legacy and future of design. Each chosen host city organizes a breakfast that features a renowned keynote speaker to provoke and encourage new ideas, and recognizes one city-selected honoree who has made significant contributions to the design industry.
We’re excited to announce that Majora Carter, Real Estate Developer will be our Keynote Speaker at this year’s Leaders Breakfast.
Majora Carter is an American urban revitalization strategist and public radio host from the South Bronx area of New York. Carter’s career has spanned environment, economy, social mobility, and real estate development, and she has won major awards in each sector including a MacArthur “Genius Grant,” a Peabody Award, the Rudy Bruner Award Silver Medal, nine honorary Ph.D.’s, and accolades from various professional groups. Her consulting clients benefit from her ability to disrupt outdated assumptions in order to uncover better solutions to vexing problems in any industry she touches. Carter is quoted on the walls of the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture: “Nobody should have to move out of their neighborhood to live in a better one.” She applies this talent-retention lens to all of her work.
Our Honoree this year will be Humble Design:
Humble Design is a 501(c)3 non-profit serving families and individuals emerging from homelessness by transforming their empty houses into beautiful and uplifting homes with donated furniture. With the organization’s help, only 1% of families return to homelessness within 12 months. Humble was co-founded by San Diego native Treger Strasberg while she was living in Detroit in 2009. After witnessing the impact of Humble Design, Treger and her husband Rob Strasberg became its CEOs and decided it would be their legacy. Humble Design operates in Detroit, Chicago, Seattle, and San Diego and has furnished over 1,250 homes nationwide. In 2019, Humble filmed the documented series “Welcome Home,” which was nominated for a Daytime Emmy. Treger and Rob currently reside in San Diego with their children and are driven by their mission of helping recently homeless families across the country.

“Project Delivery Knowledge Committee Symposium…Delivering the Future”…presented by the AIA OC (American Institute of Architects – Orange County Chapter)
This panel discussion on Project Delivery is designed to educate attendees on essential components of current trends in what was formerly termed “Alternative Project Delivery,” multiple methodologies that are rapidly becoming the norm in design and construction. Panelists have been carefully selected for their expertise in delivering projects in ways that depart from traditional techniques and represent the future of our industry including real estate development, construction/contracting, public facilities/technology, construction law, and architect in integrated practice.

LightShow West is being held this year on Sept. 25-26th at the LA Convention Center.
Two panels, one made up of interior architects/IIDA Members and the other consisting of commercial lighting designers, face off in this exciting debate which will be moderated by Scott Johnson, Wolcott Architecture/Brilliant Lighting Studio
IIDA Members on the panel:
Chris Coldoff, Gensler
Stanley Felderman, Felderman Keatinge + Assoc.

There will be both truths and consequences as these top design professionals reveal the inside story of how their award-winning commercial interior workplace and hospitality projects are cajoled/teamed/grappled and ultimately coaxed into constructed reality.
- Learn and understand the collaborative process between interior architects and lighting designers for interior workplace and hospitality projects.
- Understand which elements of the design are the responsibility of the interior architect and which are the responsibility of the lighting designer.
- Learn where the friction points in this process occur and how to avoid them.
- Understand what the respective project deliverables are for complete (and coordinated) design and lighting packages.

Please join us for this Fall’s Turning Point series with a presentation by Daniel L. Stover, Founder and CEO of Ensight Partners.
On the Brink of Burnout? Reclaim your Creativity.
A staggering rise in burnout has hit the American workforce. To be effective as leaders, creatives and professionals, we are dependent on a quiet mind, good use of our time, and clear communication within our teams. Often, we are unaware how our own psychology and tendencies obstruct our brightest creative and leadership potential. In this session, Founder and CEO of Ensight Partners, Daniel Stover, will guide attendees through the realities of burnout and balance, allowing us to overcome our individual and cultural tendencies that lead to unforgiving stress and workplace funk.
