Future Thinking: Expecting the Unexpected


As UX practitioners, we understand how our work connects user needs, business goals, and technology. Join us for a discussion that goes beyond those areas, as we talk about how our work can have outcomes that impact society and the environment.

We will look at some resources available, and participate in a brainstorming activity to help us to prepare for effective impact.
