Designing for Stigma - A Framework
Presented by Dan Miller
How might we design products for populations in which stigma is part of their experience? Understanding how to address these types of problems will enable us to design solutions for some of the largest challenges humans face today - in Healthcare, AI, Finance, Government, etc.
In this talk, Dan will explore a design mechanism to begin answering how to design for stigma. Attendees will learn a framework developed to synthesize mental health stigma into innovation, and how they can do the same for their own systems and user populations.
