DESIGNED FOR IMPACT IS A MOVEMENT THAT SEEKS TO POSITIVELY IMPACT COMMUNITY BY connecting DIVERSE GROUPS OF WOMEN TO EXPLORE topics that they care about AND INSPIRE positive PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL CHANGE.
Designed for Impact’s mission is to connect, inspire, celebrate, support and educate women from all segments of society. We create conferences and events that bring together Bermuda’s women leaders, entrepreneurs, change agents and innovators along with inspiring keynotes, facilitators, panels and attendees.
Our ultimate goal is to connect women and help them build their personal and professional support networks and provide content and conversations that inspire and motivate. Our goal is for every attendee to leave DFI compelled to make positive personal and professional changes and impact the communities in which they live and work in a positive way.
Designed for Impact is a conference series which provides carefully curated relevant, content through keynotes, panels and learning experiences on topics that women care about. Topics & experiences include: leadership, strengths communications, health, confidence, women supporting women, work life balance/integration and more!
Diversity & inclusion, supporting women & women-owned businesses, giving back to our community and developing the next generation of women leaders are core tenants that drive our programming structures.
Our sister event, Young Original Unstoppable, which is produced by DFI, aims to help young girls connect, accelerate their development and potential so that they can embrace life with confidence.
Designed for Impact began in 2017 with a small group of 37 diverse local and visiting women spanning 6 decades and employed by multiple industries. Over the course of that first conference, laughter, learning and connection over shared experiences impacted each attendee in a meaningful way. It was at that first event that the vision to for Designed for Impact was born.
In November of 2018, Designed for Impact presented its first large scale conference. With over 300 attendees across 7 industries, 14 speakers and panelists with 300+ years of expertise, 33 sponsors, 20+ volunteers, 28 women-owned businesses and over 180 minutes of professional development it was an impactful experience. And now the journey continues…
