Join our book club where we read books at the intersection of design, social justice, and technology. Every other month, our book book club gets together to discuss the latest book.
QTBIPOC Design Book Club
Notes for Our Events
- All attendees are asked to please read and abide by the QTBIPOC Design Code of Conduct.
- If you didn’t have time to read, that’s ok! While reading is highly recommended, it is not required to join our book club. Those interested in the current book and the discussion following are invited to attend.
- For those who may not be able to afford the books in our book club, please reach out to us via Slack or at our email address firstname.lastname@example.org. As RuPaul says, “reading is fundamental” and we believe that everyone in our community deserves to access books and education.
“How will our product hurt people?” As web workers, we don’t often ask this question—but we should. Too often, we design for idealized circumstances, even though our users bring a range of complicated personal dynamics to every interaction. When we fail to explicitly design for vulnerable users, we unintentionally prioritize their abusers.
Stay tuned. 🙂
