Event description

For years, designers have fought for a seat at the table. Now that we’ve got one, how are we using it to uplift others? As we reckon with the second-order effects of tech on people across the world, designers must balance a desire to scale with an ethical imperative to consider the needs of a broader cohort than just ourselves.

Join us for a conversation about effective processes and teachable moments around making products that prioritize intersectionality. Our panelists include those whose design decisions have made huge impacts around the world and designers who work directly with marginalized groups that tech often overlooks.

Nicole Thayer, Principal Designer at Carbon Five
