What is a profession without a community, without people to talk to, people who can help you solve challenges, think through ideas, share in your wins?
As a professional Institute, one of DFI’s core functions is the establishment of a platform that fosters the professional development of our members. One that keeps them informed about global developments and emergent ideas and trends in our domain, as well as providing them with continued opportunities to learn and grow through mentor programs and further training.
We have created a unique interactive platform where our members are able to connect and collaborate across countries, time zones, cultures, languages, domain challenges and are able to celebrate the progress we make together. Our members will have access to monthly webcasts, a platform for digital discussions through blogs, forums and live chats and access to our data repository of materials, including ongoing research and case studies as contributed by faculty and community members.
Our digital community is complimented by physical meetings such as an annual global gathering with selected thought leaders as well as local meetings in the form of Communities’ of Practice (CoP’s) or gatherings facilitated and sponsored by affiliated organizations.
