Bennie F. Johnson

For our 375th episode, I had the opportunity to sit down with Bennie F. Johnson, the new executive director of AIGA, the professional organization for design. As the first Black executive director in AIGA’s 100+ year history, Bennie is taking on a huge responsibility. When I asked him how he felt about this, he gave me two words: “boldly hopeful!”

Bennie talked about what attracted him to this role, and how he’s managed to grow into it during this tumultuous year. We also discussed a number of other topics, including AIGA and today’s modern designer, diversity and inclusion, as well as some of this year’s recent public exits from members. Bennie is working hard on building (and rebuilding) AIGA, and I’m glad we are having this conversation on Revision Path!

This is our 50th podcast interview! And I couldn’t be more excited to share with you this conversation with Angelica Ross.

Angelica is the CEO and executive director of TransTech Social Enterprises, a training academy and apprenticeship program that aims to empower, educate and employ the trans community through the use of technology while promoting innovation, independence and entrepreneurship. She is someone who has made her career out of helping others navigate the challenges that come along with being a member of more than one minority.

Angelica’s path is truly inspiring, and I couldn’t be happier to share her story with you. Thank you Angelica, and thanks to you all for 50 episodes of the Revision Path podcast!
