World Usability Day – Designing for the Future We Want
November 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
As UX professionals, we are always balancing between how the design will impact users and business goals. But how much are we thinking about our work with the larger concept of the future in mind? What we design today can have a lasting impact on people’s lives and the world, so what kind of future are we designing for?
Join us for UXPA Minnesota’s World Usability Day All-Day Conference as we explore how our work as usability professionals moves us closer to the future. As a single-track conference, the sessions will include Diversity and Inclusion, Accessibility, Voice and Language, UX Operations, and Emerging Design Strategies for all levels of UX professionals.
