Bringing teams together and building community with user problems

With larger and larger organizations, scale often puts teams into silos. How do we break out of our silos and create momentum with relevant and adjacent teams to solve user problems together with design thinking? As a community organizer outside of work, I'll share how I combined my community building strategies with design thinking to get multiple teams and work streams to join forces and work together.

How working as a sous chef made me a better designer

In a complex world, with each person being unique, I find a lot of benefits in coming from a non-privileged background and being a neurodivergent (autistic) person when designing with a global team for a global product.

A lot of components were important to make me the designer I'm today and one of the experiences I found important is having worked as a sous chef in a restaurant for one year. I can see a lot of relation between these two worlds (the struggles, the processes, the excellence, and the interaction with people) and I want to share it with others.

Transitioning From Agency to Product

As a designer at an agency, making the decision to go in-house at a large product company can be a difficult one to make. If you’re thinking of making the leap, what are some of the differences you should be aware of? How do you navigate the adjustment between the two worlds? In this session, I’ll share some thoughts on how you can work through differences in scale and how to make the transition more efficient.
