Current Theme: Inclusive UX Design
Updated: May 3, 2021
On May 13, UXPA-MN welcomes Joelle Allen, Chief Inclusion Strategist at Interaction Traction, Inc. and Director of Client Engagement at kpCompanies to talk us through anti-racist hiring practices and how to find and retain diverse talent.
To coincide with Joelle's virtual visit, we have curated a number of resources related to diversity, inclusion, and allyship within the UX discipline. This is by no means intended to be a comprehensive list of resources on this topic. We recognize that being a good ally and designing for all types of users is a complex, integral part of our work and there are countless voices in the community from whom we can learn. Please do not hesitate to reach out with additional works on this topic that you think would benefit our community.
