Making space at the table: Inclusion requires action

|

Equity, advocacy, and representation are big words in UX right now, but what do they actually look like? How do we take these important concepts and make them pragmatic, actionable, and real within content organizations?

Join this session for tips and takeaways on how it looks to ensure real equity on your content teams—from building very human teams that practice candor and transparency, to creating space for your teammates to be seen, heard, respected, and trusted. Let’s move this conversation forward and talk about how to make a seat at the table happen, for our peers and ourselves.

In this session, you can expect:

  • Strategies for advocating for yourself and your peers with stakeholders, decision makers, and other people with fancy job titles
  • Ways to help your team embrace their authenticity, whether you’re a manager, IC, or loyal friend
  • How-tos on keeping equity and inclusion top of mind
  • Tips on chopping imposter syndrome in the neck
  • Real-life examples of honest hits and misses
