The Challenge of Ethical Design

This February, I had the opportunity to attend and speak at UXOK 2021 on the Challenge of Ethical Design. Hosted by Techlahoma, the organizers did a fantastic job streaming and coordinating this virtual conference.

You can view talks from this conference on Techlahoma’s Youtube stream. I wish I could point you to a favorite, but every talk I saw was engaging. Additionally, they all pushed us to think critically as designers. This year’s inaugural conference set the bar high for future UXOK events post-pandemic.

For this conference, I chose to speak on the challenge of ethical designs. This talk encourages viewers to think about their role as designers and the assumptions baked into the design process. Viewers should finish the talk understanding ethical design and resources they can use throughout the design process. Feel free to watch my talk here:

Thanks for watching!
