World Usability Day with UX Research and Strategy

Trust, Ethics and Integrity in Design

Join UXRS as we celebrate World Usability Day (WUD) 2021. The theme for this year’s event is trust, ethics, and integrity in design. As this is such an important topic, we will be having a panel discussion featuring industry professionals sharing feedback on how to address some of today’s biggest ethical challenges in UX.

This discussion will center on:

  • What are the biggest ethical concerns that the UX field faces?
  • How do we address ethical challenges in the workplace?
  • What are industry best practices to avoid unethical practices?

After the panel, stick around for a couple rounds of Networking breakout rooms and meet others who have an interest in UX research, strategy and design.
