Principals Round Table

Running a firm during the pandemic is hard. So is change. But successful leaders have embraced this time as an opportunity to reevaluate their organizational goals and operations. Our panel of principals will share how their firms evolved for the better in response to the challenges caused by COVID-19—and the impact it’s having on their outlook for the future. Our speakers include Yolanda Cole, Founder and Principal of Hickok Cole, Salina Brown, Director of Marketing of Rosendin, Beth Hernandez, Global Communications Leader at DPR Construction and Jolsna Thomas, President of The Rosendin Foundation.

What You'll Learn

Attendees will learn what today’s top firms are doing to address shifts in American workplace culture and how those changes are driving top-level decisions from project pursuits and partnering to recruiting and retention efforts. Panelists will also shed light on how marketing and communications leaders can use their seat at the table and unique skillset to add value during times of change. Topics will include acting on ESG and DEI commitments, assessing and adopting flexible work policies, and investing in advanced technologies and AI. *Please note that PRT events are only open to those with 10+ years of experience in the AEC industry.
