Festival registration is open! Design Week 2020 runs virtually from August 3-7.
Good UX is empathy in action, placing the user’s perspective at the center of a product or service. So what happens when a multitude of human experiences are not considered? What is the cost when people are excluded from participating in the UX process based on the inherent biases of the UX professionals responsible for creating an experience? Looking inward, what can you do as a UX professional to prevent the things you design from harming those we need to help most?
This session will be led by IN.VOLVE, a new community-led initiative and brave space for UX professionals to address and discuss issues of race, bias, and inclusivity in the design profession. Join us for a lively panel talk followed by Q&A, where we’ll be discussing real-world examples of inequality in society, and the greater effect around UX and the world as a whole. During our session, we will provide useful tools to help you apply a more diverse and inclusive approach to your work in UX.
We welcome you to our communal learning space where we call for all of us to Be Brave, Be Enlightened, and Be In.VOLVEd in a greater change within ourselves and within our world!
**Confirmed panelists include: Ben Cerezo, (UX Design Leader); Jerica Copeny, (UX Researcher); Chris Thoms (UX Strategist)
