Designing the Future of Online Marketplaces Without Discrimination
Join us for the sixth annual Austin Design Week!
Imagining a future where everyone is treated equally is much easier said than done. Cognitive biases help form one’s worldview and have evolutionarily kept humans alive by enabling quick decisions based on very little information. Unfortunately, cognitive biases are also the foundation of stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.
As more online marketplaces are built, we need to design ways to prevent discrimination on these digital platforms. Design and tech teams have the power and opportunity to create inclusive online marketplaces that encourage objective participation and fair transactions.
Join our diverse panel of designers and behavioral scientists working on this problem across multiple industries, as we discuss how each of them are approaching this problem today, and how we might contribute to a future of platforms free from discrimination.
This event is open to anyone who works in digital marketplaces or real estate tech, including Product/UX/Interaction Designers, Product Managers, and UX Researchers.
