Let's get together and discuss topics that surround the design and product fields. The HCD book club hopes to supplement designers, researchers, product-focused roles, and marketers (anyone is welcomed) with books and events on topics such as behavioral economics, A.I., hospitality, anthropology, psychology, etc. All these fields study how people behave. Understanding behavior is also a key part of many of our roles. So let's get academic and discuss how learnings from these broader fields could be applied to our work.
Chicago already has a great UX book club (https://www.meetup.com/UXChicago/), so make sure to check them out!
