What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Design impacts people’s lives. That impact can be positive or negative – and we are responsible for both. Today, as technology scales the planet and people’s experiences are tied up in digital transformation, UX design has the potential to affect and alter human behavior. Every decision from the minuscule to the systematic has repercussions, many of which we’re only now coming to terms with.
How did we get here, and how do we meet the challenges of modern design? Join Albert Shum, CVP of Design at Microsoft, for a discussion on the unique power of design to ask why, to be thoughtful, and to build more responsible technology on behalf of humanity.
6pm: Talk on “Responsible Design”
7pm: Networking and Job Fair
