Gina Emmanuel was recognized in the Community Champions of the Year category.
Biggest opportunity of the past year: With the increasing comfort level of virtual meetings, I was able to connect with several design-based businesses across the country on a regular basis. A few friends, colleagues and I created a design collective/business support group that meets once a month to share ideas. I don’t think we would have done that pre-Covid.
Biggest challenge of the past year: Checking my multiple methods of digital communication on a daily basis.
Nashville challenge that needs more attention: Supporting the innovators in our city that are proposing creative ways to address ongoing challenges.
New skill I perfected in 2020: The art of outdoor meetings and events.
