Chicago For Humanity
I wish I was there to join the first Meetup, it seems like it was a good talk. The next can be at my place, online or your pick for Cafe. Please let me know in the comments which you would prefer! If it’s a bigger group than 10, we will need to pick a place or meet online.
It’s going to be an informal, cozy meet-up with fellow designers! I also wanted to make this meetup focused on humanitarian issues we are facing globally today and brainstorm technical solutions.
To give you some content I wanted to discuss, perhaps in the next meeting… here are some links to my blog posts where I am writing about some of these to get the conversation started: -
List of topics I wanted to expand on:
Humanity-centered design to solve the world’s most pressing issues and how important it is to collaborate with designers in various professions, from service design, to ux and ui, and management.
Organizations or design groups to join to design for positive change and/or inspiration.
Areas you like to design for (ex. combating human trafficking, biotech, wildlife, medical, environmental, refugee crisis, etc.) and how do we tackle these issues as UX professionals?
Best design for humanity events to attend.
Please feel free to share yours as well or what has been discussed in the first meeting, so we can continue exploring those as well! Thanks!!
