ANNUAL REPORT: Design Core Saw Big Changes!
Design Core experienced significant restructuring in 2022. In May, Design Core Detroit announced that Bonnie Fahoome and Kiana Wenzell were promoted to Co-Executive Directors. They succeed Olga Stella, who will continue to provide oversight to the organization in her role as Vice President of Strategy and Communication at the College for Creative Studies (CCS), of which Design Core is a part.
Stella, Fahoome and Wenzell worked to facilitate the leadership transition beginning in November 2021, experimenting and testing new decision making and workflow procedures. Fahoome and Wenzell led the effort to redesign the vacant positions and recruit a diverse candidate pool to fill them.
