Join us as we talk about Inclusion through User Experience!

November 9

The world is changing and the climate of well-balanced and open society is not as prevalent as many of us would like.  Technology is developing alongside new political changes. This year, 2017 is a pivotal moment in history and we can help shape the course of events by the work we do.   

This year, Puget Sound World Usability Day is November 9th, and will be showcasing an invitation-only roster of exciting speakers from our region's leading companies and organizations, including Google, Disney, Amazon, Microsoft, The City of Seattle, Tableau, the University of Washington, among others.  Our event, Inclusion through User Experience is the final conference of the International Event of World Usability Day.

We will have a full day of speakers from 9am to 5pm, with keynote speaker Bill Buxton of Sketching User Experiences beginning our day and a Happy Hour at the end.  Students ($20) and Industry professionals ($40) donation.
