April 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
There are no silver bullets when it comes to designing for safety, but knowing and understanding of some of our most common blind spots as designers helps. This brief talk covers the domestic violence threat model as well as specific areas of concern, including trouble with shared accounts, Internet-connected harm, location data, and surveillance. We’ll also discuss what designers can learn about authentic consent from the anti-sexual assault space. Finally, the audience will walk away with a high-level overview of implementing a practice of designing for safety into their everyday work.
