About this Event

About Women Talk Design Speaker Stories

There isn’t one singular path to public speaking. Folks decide to speak for a variety of reasons, get started in different ways, and have their own techniques for preparing for talks and dealing with nerves.

Learn about the journeys and experiences of incredible women and nonbinary speakers with our new series: Women Talk Design Speaker Stories. Join us each week as we interview one of our speakers to learn the topics they are currently speaking about and why, how they find speaking opportunities, their advice for getting started with public speaking, and more.

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions and connect with folks from the Women Talk Design community. We hope you’ll leave inspired to share your own ideas and experiences, and get out there and speak.

Stick around after the conversation for breakout discussions. During this time you can connect with other people in the Women Talk Design community and discuss what you learned.

Agenda

  • 5 minutes | Welcome
  • 20 minutes | Conversation with Ariba Jahan

About our Speaker

Ariba Jahan is the Director of Innovation at the Ad Council where she established the organization’s innovation practice. Her current projects include scaling equitable design practices across the organization, leading design sprints, creating digital products for social impact, exploring future-forward technology, and nurturing a culture that fosters equity and innovation. As a member of the DEI Council, she also leads efforts to advance equity and inclusion at the organization.

As an immigrant Bengali woman who discovered her profound hearing loss at age eight, Ariba advocates for diverse, marginalized voices that are often overlooked to ensure we bring equity into tech. She designs inclusive and equitable human-centered products and experiences by developing teams built on curiosity, resiliency, and experimentation.

Ariba is an international speaker and has spoken at events across the U.S., U.K., Japan, and Chile. She also volunteers to teach UX design to marginalized high school students in NYC.
