team size, e.g. “UX team of one” vs. small team vs. large department
* organizational structure, e.g. centralized UX team vs. individuals embedded in project teams

    Hi, this is Ben. I am so excited to be bringing this panel to the HFIDO organization! I’m really looking forward to moderating the discussion amongst this group of fantastic panelists.

    I know this conversation will be of great interest to anyone considering a career in user experience or related fields, as well as “old hands” who have been practicing for years, but want to hear about the experiences of others who have done similar work in different contexts.

    I look forward to “meeting” all of you for this online event on the 31st!
