David's upcoming talk at FBTB23

The Content Design of Civil Discourse: Turning Conflict into Collaboration

In the current political climate, it seems like we’ve all but given up on productive, respectful discourse. However, there are simple design and content design choices we can make that encourage collaboration over conflict, even when dealing with hot-button issues. In this session, we’ll look at real-world examples of how the way we phrase a question or design an interaction can have a huge impact on the quality of conversation and the three rules they share.

Workshop with David at FBTB23

Inclusive Design: Creating a Bias-Informed Practice

What David Dylan Thomas doesn't know about biased design is probably not worth knowing. Getting the chance to learn his expertise is priceless, and we are really excited about this opportunity.

This workshop is intended to help organizations come up with systemic ways to mitigate bias in their design processes, resulting in more effective design and far more satisfied customers. It begins with the acknowledgement that our users have biases, and so do we. So, we have to ask ourselves – how might we use design and content tools and methods to reduce the harm those biases might cause? Or even use some of our mental shortcuts for good.

Read about the takeaways you can expect from the workshop.
