Beyond UX Theatre: Real Impact in AI, Mental Health, and Leadership

In our Tent Talks session with Tanya Snook, we’ll explore the intersections of design, technology, and well-being in the workplace. Tanya Snook, a seasoned user experience designer known for her critical eye on UX Theatre and her commitment to genuine design leadership, will share her insights on creating more humane performance reviews, addressing anxiety and mental health in the workplace, and critically examining the role of AI in our design practices. This session promises to shed light on how we can navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of workplace technology and culture with empathy, ensuring that our approaches to design and leadership foster environments where innovation thrives and employees feel valued and understood.

Listeners will gain not just an understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by modern design and technology but also practical strategies for implementing change. This is an essential talk for anyone interested in the future of work, the role of design in creating meaningful user and employee experiences, and how to lead with humanity in the face of technological advancement. Join us to explore how we can collectively shape a workplace that embraces technological innovation without losing sight of the human element.

Tent Talks: Sharing Ideas with the UX Design Community

Chicago Camps hosts irregularly scheduled Tent Talks with people from all across the User Experience Design community, and beyond.

What is a Tent Talk? 

That’s a great question, we’d love to tell you.

Tent Talks are Chicago Camps’ signature live podcast sessions, designed to foster engaging discussions. Each session, lasting between 10 to 20 minutes, features a series of five thought-provoking questions with our guest speakers.

This format not only encourages insightful dialogue but also ensures that each session is packed with valuable content that is easily and quickly consumable. Post-event, these talks are polished and published on popular platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify, allowing a wider audience to benefit from these enriching conversations.

Why We Do Tent Talks

Our goal with Tent Talks is to continue providing high-quality, accessible content that resonates with and enriches the UX Design community. We believe in the power of sharing knowledge and experiences, and through these talks, we aim to foster a space for learning, inspiration, and connection. These sessions are more than just discussions; they are a platform for idea exchange and community building within and beyond the realms of UX Design.
