Shanae is an excellent thought leader and facilitator. I participated in her Designing Anti-Racism workshop through IxDA. Her confident, welcoming approach to bringing participants into a shared space encouraged open discussion and exploration of the role diversity and inclusion plays in UX research and design.
Shanae presented a fantastic talk at the UXPA International 2020 Virtual Conference on Designing Anti-Racism. She shared very practical and actionable steps for Anti-Racism in organizations that attendees could take away and implement immediately. We received lots of positive comments from the audience and I personally took away some very important changes I’ve been able to implement in my own company.
I was first introduced to Shanae through a panel held by NSBE and UXPA Boston: Her advice was well-received by all of the attendees and she really tailored her responses to each person’s question about the UX path.
