About this event

In partnership with General Assembly, StartOut New York is hosting a comprehensive workshop on designing for trans and gender non-conforming folks.

Designers and product owners have a long way to go to make our products, services, interfaces, and experiences more inclusive to Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) users. We have the power and responsibility to include, delight, and protect them, and be accountable if we upset, marginalize, and even endanger them.

How can we do better?

How can we become aware of our unconscious biases? What unique challenges do TGNC folks face? What can we do to make them feel included and safe? How can research help? When is collecting gender identity information important or necessary? Why is designing for diversity and inclusion more than the cool thing to do, but an ethical decision? A panel of UX designers who dedicated their work to this topic will discuss these questions, and much more.

Our evening will begin with a series of lightning talks by our speakers, followed by the Fishbowl, a format that welcomes discussions and conversations between panelists and the audience.
