Business for Good Focus Group: Interior Designers @ Johnson County Central Resource Library
Jan 9 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

Are you a residential interior designer?

Do you want to be part of a select group to help create an educational program that will show you how your business can make a positive impact on the environment and our communities?

Then join us at our upcoming focus group session and let your voice be heard!

The Resilient Activist is developing a Business for Good course for residential interior designers to enhance the healthy home, environmental, and social justice impact of choices they make in client projects.

Our course will connect designers with local resources including artists and craftspeople, as well as holistic, eco-aware, and fair trade products and services.

We will be asking focus group participants to share their successes and failures in incorporating environmentally-focused aspects into their design projects. We are asking for feedback and ideas as we share the tentative curriculum for our course. What are their pain points? What would they love to learn more about to uplift their own businesses?

And we’ll have a special gift for your participation! You’ll receive the PDF “100+ EnviroTips for the Home Checklist” to use over and over again with your clients!

Please register here:

Note: Your registration will only sign you up for the focus group event. If you’ d like to join The Resilient Activist’s email list, please sign up here.
