IxDA Boston is teaming with Creative Mornings Boston, General Assembly and HireMinds to celebrate the first World Interaction Design Day (IxDD) with the Greater Boston design community. On the morning of September 24, we will host Pamela Pavliscak (https://www.changesciences.com/pamela-pavliscak), author of "Emotionally Intelligent Design: Rethinking How We Create Products." Pamela is an expert on our emotional relationship with tech, and her work brings together empathy research, affective computing, and expressive interfaces to make technology more human.

Come hear a thought leader speak to an interaction designer's mandate in the real world, make new connections (and deepen old connections) in the local design community, or meet local recruiters and learn more about current opportunities in the area... whatever the reason, we hope to see you there!

This is a free event! Please register for your tickets on Eventbrite: https://ixda-boston-cm-emotionally-intelligent-design.eventbrite.com

About World Interaction Design Day
September 24, 2019 is World Interaction Design Day (https://interactiondesignday.org/). Join us in Boston, where we will come together as part of a united global design community to celebrate and explore how interaction design improves the human condition. Our aim is to have a positive, long-lasting impact by facilitating activities that support dialogue and outcomes. The theme for our first year is Trust and Responsibility.

About Our Speaker
Pamela Pavliscak (pav-li-shock) guides organizations toward emotionally intelligent futures as founder of Change Sciences. Part ethnography, part psychology, part data science, her approach translates future vision into tangible everyday possibilities.

She specializes in emotionally intelligent design and emotion-sensing artificial intelligence. Her research has been featured on CBC's Spark, Salon, and Quartz. Her book, Emotionally Intelligent Design, focuses on how to design a future that has as much EQ as it does IQ.

Pamela is a TEDx speaker and has spoken at SxSW , TNW, Web Summit, Google Creative Labs, among many others. She teaches at the Pratt Institute School of Information in NYC and has lectured at the Stanford d.School, ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination, University of Washington, and Parsons. She serves on an international committee to develop IEEE standard 7000 for ethically aligned AI.
