Join Seattle Women of Design & UX for a panel discussion with design experts from Dell, This Place, and Google. We will discuss some of the biggest, most obvious differences between designing for an enterprise product vs designing for a consumer facing product in addition to the more subtle distinctions discovered over time. We’ll also talk about the different qualities leaders look for in a consumer designer vs an enterprise designer, how stakeholders are similar or different between the two types of design, the balance between speed vs scale, and how design processes evolve to account for these competing demands.

There will be plenty of time to mingle prior to the event and afterwards. Drinks and snacks will be provided. This event is hosted by Christina Storm at the Google office in Fremont. This is an inclusive event and open to all!

6:00 - 6:30PM --> Doors open, mingle and enjoy a drink and snack
