UX Camp Spring 2022

Good Intentions and Bad Actors

As designers, we are able to leverage our understanding of the human condition and systems to transform technology into offerings that make millions of dollars for companies, while remaining idealistic about our goals of making people’s lives better or “changing the world.” But our process doesn’t make room to consider what things might just go sideways. I think this borders on negligence. We have a responsibility to ourselves, our profession, our customers, our colleagues, and the businesses who employ us to forecast the impact of our work at scale and work to mitigate risks. Let’s talk about how to integrate appropriate tools and the processes to do so properly.
