✨October 2022 Community Jam✨

Uncentering Yourself In Your Design Practice
This month, we're welcoming Janey Lee (She/Her), Senior Product Designer at Spotify, in our October Community Jam for the Inclusive Design Jam community.

When Janey moved to Stockholm to join Spotify Design, one of her main goals was to learn more about designing products for the entire world, and not just the US and Europe. Over the past two years, she learned designing for the globe meant nothing short of undoing most default behaviors and assumptions she held as a designer.

In this interactive session, Janey will talk to us about lessons learned in the process of critically examining and evolving her design practice.

We'll then move into an interactive exercise to explore how each of us has centered ourselves in our design practice and ways that we can uncenter ourselves moving forward.

📚 If you can't make it, we'll send out a detailed recap and recording afterwards to all those who register as well as our community members.

From now until the end of the year, all community jams will be open to the general public. In the future, they will be open only to community members.

Who are we?

We are the Inclusive Design Jam, an inclusive design learning community committed to making the access and use of products, services and environments equal to all. We meet in monthly jam sessions and in our Slack group to explore and workshop topics related to inclusive and equitable design.

The community and jam sessions are proudly hosted by Sandra Camacho (She/Her), aka Sandra By Design, an independent inclusive design consultant and educator based in Paris, France.
