Hi! Will there be a specific topic discussed? One of the 17 UN world problems?

Hi. I was actually planning on reflecting on my recent change in job roles, with my new job focusing on creating social good and how it’s different than my job designing enterprise functionality. That was before Don Norman came out with the Design For the 21sy Century course, but there’s definitively a lot of overlap.

Hi all! Excited to join this discussion. What kind of “good cause” will we be talking about? I’m a designer in the public service/safety sector, so I’m particularly interested in learning about what other people are doing in that space.

I’m excited to get your perspective. I’m currently working in the philanthropic arm of a private company, so I’d love to do some compare and contrast.

Looking forward to hearing the speakers and potential zoom talk with other IxDF members after the talk(s). I joined IxDF in hopes of my using my current design experience for products and services that better the world.

That’s fantastic! Will love hearing your perspective, too. I’m convinced now more than ever that technology and design made to help people thrive and minimize the footprint of harm are an imperative.

Exciting. What are the times and specific agenda?

Hey there, Lord. The hangout is from 5:30-7:00 on Tuesday Sep 27. The agenda is pretty loose. I want to share some things I’ve learned in this transition, but then I’d love to learn more as a group, so I’ll try to keep from blabbing too much - I just want to set a foundation for the discussion.

Does anyone know if this will be recorded? Wouldn’t want to miss out.

I believe we record these. I try to get all my foul language out prior to the calls. ;)

Devin how can I get a hold of these recording? please advise

This talk will be recorded.

Hi Louis, we will post a link to the Slack channel. This link to Join slack will work for the next 30 days: https://join.slack.com/t/idf-chicago/shared_invite/zt-1gn5h4fud-8QMGr1_j6EPS~MzgAIBYAg

I’ll post a link back here after the session, Louis.

Thanks all! Great discussion tonight!
