*Title:* Race in the Field: Navigating User Research as Designers of Color
*Date: *January 29
*Time: *2:00 - 3:30 pm ET

*Description: *This panel brings together POC designers to speak about how
their racial background influences their user research approach.

As POC design researchers, how do we navigate racist participants and field
sites? How do we manage second-hand trauma and survivor's guilt when doing
work within our own communities? How do we position ourselves in
organizations as advocates for racially diverse users? What do we see as
the future of user research and design leadership?

You’ll leave with ideas for how to thoughtfully craft your research
practices around race and how to better support your POC colleagues in and
out of the field. Speakers include:

   - Mithula Naik <>, Head of
   Design Research at the Canadian Digital Service
   - Dr. Chelsea Johnson <>,
   Senior UX Researcher at LinkedIn and Author of *IntersectionAllies: We
   Make Room for All* <>
   - Jazmyn Latimer <>, Service
   Design Director at Code for America <>
   - Sarah Fathallah <>, Independent
   Social Designer <>

This event is open to designers of all backgrounds.
