UX design is a powerful tool when used well. We, as designers, have the power to help and also to hurt others.
In “Designing for the LGBTQ+ Community,” we’ll be exploring “light”💡 and “dark” 🌫 patterns in product design and how they affect LGBTQ+ individuals.
We’ll also talk about what you can do to promote active change in your product and organization!
