We’re excited to announce that for our June UX Book Club, Indi Young will be joining us in a live video link-up to explore and discuss her new book, Practical Empathy. For this event, our discussions will be over lattes – as we’re holding the bookclub at breakfast time in the CBD.
Indi is a trailblazer of design strategy, interaction design, and information architecture and was one of the founders of the legendary UX agency Adaptive Path.
We’ll be discussing Indi’s latest book, Practical Empathy and she will be taking part in our discussion.
Indi says: “This book is not about the kind of empathy where you feel the same emotions as another person. It’s about understanding how another person thinks – what’s going on inside her head and heart. And most importantly, it’s about acknowledging her reasoning and emotions as valid, even if they differ from your own understanding. This acknowledgment has all sorts of practical applications, especially in your work. This book explores using empathy in your work, both in the way you make things and the way you interact with people.”
