Practice Makes: Empowerment | Co-hosted with Ladies That UX

For details, link here:

Join us for Practice Makes: Empowerment, the next installment of our meetup-series co-hosted with Ladies that UX.

We all face adversity in our jobs and our everyday lives. Sometimes all we can do is shake our fists in and hope that it will get better. It’s times when we gather and share our stories and experiences that we can empower ourselves and each other. Let us do just that, as we share food, drink, and conversation. Join us the evening of August 15th to hear from our lineup of speakers talk about how they have empowered themselves and others in the design field!

All are welcome to this event regardless of how they identify.

Can’t make it anymore? No problem! Just be sure to update your RSVP so someone else can take your spot.

Panel Discussion

Speaker Lineup:
Manifesting Moments of Power
Let’s candidly discuss tactics and real stories to avoid the horror and define you as a hero, empowering you in moments you would otherwise avoid or feel powerless. Engage in a meeting with the ‘big dogs’. Advocate for that promotion. Be the outlying gender, type or level. The list goes on… and we’re going to crush it.

Unlocking Everyday User-Centricity

How a small (yet mighty) team of design researchers help their ezCater colleagues think and act in more user-centered ways. This talk includes strategies that non-researchers can leverage to keep users at the forefront of everyday design, development and product decisions.

Leveraging Organizational Politics for Design Team Success

It can be a struggle to make the practice of design truly influential.There are approaches you can use to detect and leverage underlying organizational systems by tuning in to competing goals and process nuances. Armed with this—and a healthy sense of collaboration and allyship with other groups—you and your design team can achieve influence and move projects forward.
