The Itchy Discomfort Of Trying To Fit In

An often stated Japanese proverb is that “the nail that sticks up gets hammered down”. As a Japanese American it's been interesting to reflect on how culture, nurture and nature can shape the personal decisions we make in our careers. Establishing design in tech centric companies can also present challenges depending on the culture and nature of the company. Rochelle will talk about lessons learned on the journey of establishing design teams - and the delicate balance between fitting in vs finding strength in a unique voice.
