If you asked a member of a historically underrepresented group about their experience with your product, what do you think they would say?
While design and product teams may not set out to exclude or cause harm, those products will only be as inclusive as the research informing them.
Your product needs feedback from diverse and marginalized populations to ensure you meet their needs.
Join Kristin Zibell and Shakima Jackson-Martinez on Tuesday, May 4th at 10am PT/ 1pm ET, as they share AnswerLab's approach to Experience Gap Research including:
- Advice for navigating stakeholder resistance and building a business case for this research
