About the Session

Why do so many designers have expensive cars but seemingly little power?

What does it take for designers and researchers to not only have a seat at the table, but to also make their voices heard in the conversation?

How can we not just follow a strategy, but help shape it?

In this conversation, Indi Young and Daniel Burka will explore how trust, power and empathy are connected and how the people of UX can actually impact the course of a business.

About the Speaker

Indi Young

Researcher, Coach, Writer

Indi is a researcher who coaches, writes, and teaches about inclusive product strategy. Her work is rooted in the problem space where the focus is on people, not users. Indi pioneered opportunity maps, mental model diagrams, and thinking styles. Her way of approaching the problem allows teams to truly pay attention to people, without letting cognitive bias and assumptions creep in. Indi has written two books, Practical Empathy and Mental Models. Her next book, Assumptions Aside, will cover thinking styles. She builds knowledge and community via a series of live online advanced courses about the importance of pushing the boundaries of your perspective. She was one of the founders of Adaptive Path, the pioneering UX agency.
