This month we welcome Jack Sheppard who’ll be talking all about…

Empathy, product design and being a good human

Empathy is a fundamental part of our human experience but the technology we build and design is at odds with that. So what is empathy, where does it come from and what can we learn from it?

Let’s talk about what it means to be an empathetic being, the effect technology is having on our ability to empathise with each other and what we can do to understand each other, communicate and design more ethical ‘things’ that help people be people.
