Crushing Constraints as a Marginalized Group
As designers, we take pride in what we do. Creating experiences to improve the lives of many despite the constraints of budgets, technology, and the like. Designers of marginalized backgrounds design & exist in an industry that begs to be reinvented while battling the constraints of the social system we know as the workplace. So, without a title how can we facilitate change? In this talk, we will reframe challenges within our social systems, from revealing opportunities for individual growth to harnessing the courage to ask for change within your organization.
In this talk, your key takeaways include:
- How the workplace is a social system, from individual contributor to the organizations we work for
- How marginalized professionals can take ownership of their careers
- How to be an accomplice, not just an ally
- How to be better colleagues & teammates
