Angular Denver '19: Designing against Domestic Violence
Angular Denver 2019 | Designing against Domestic Violence | Eva Penzeymoog
What you'll learn
Eva Penzeymoog works to ensure that digital products cannot be be used as tools of abuse and she shares her findings with other people who create digital products. This work involves research on how technology both enables abuse and fails to recognize user behavior that indicates abuse, resulting in a lost opportunity to offer meaningful support. She is intentional about providing clear, true, and always anonymous examples, and she aims to provide a concrete set of steps that people who work in tech can take to build products that won't result in harm against their users. This talk is the culmination of this research and the first step of a larger project to reduce harm in the world through centering the safety of victims of domestic violence.
