TLDR: We need to have a conversation about how the dynamics of whiteness impact the UX community and our understanding of being human-centered — and the ways it’s led to harm within the UX Industry.
In this talk, we’ll be unpacking the impact of overlooking power and privilege in our understanding of being “human-centered,” the realities of systemic racism and silencing within the UX community, and how we might move closer to maturity and accountability as a practice.
This talk will be uncomfortable but avoiding it will only reinforce a shallow point of view of our work, ourselves, and others. Let’s begin doing the work to change that.
Let’s start choosing courage over comfort together.
