Abstract

Building user safety into the foundation of technology we create is everyone’s responsibility. But it can be difficult to ensure your development processes are prioritizing your users’ well being. Whether or not you have research or UX/product design resources, there are ways to get your team collaborating on inclusive software.
This talk will provide design strategies that the Community & Safety team at GitHub uses to design safer, more consensual features and discuss how you can incorporate them into your own engineering teams’ processes.
