Panel Discussion

Beyond pixels: A discussion on ethics and accountability in design
Prachi Sakhardande (Host)
As designers, we have an accountability to our end users. But in the course of design, we also end up being accountable to business, tech, revenue considerations and we end up making choices that are driven by considerations deemed bigger than the best interest of the end users. Many designers start with enthusiasm to safeguard users interest, but at some point, it becomes all about doing a job and finishing a deliverable. This is a contentious aspect in the industry, as few designers choose to work in a box defined for themselves, which is about – I know design, my business stakeholder knows business – I dont want to step into that space and influence business decisions. It then brings us back to the conversation on, what really then is design? Are we doing an injustice to the users we are accountable for, by defining our zones as just a visual depiction of business requirements, requirements that may actually hurt end users? Is it because our design education itself is too narrow in ethics and accountability? Or is this because there is really no ethics committee in the design space, that holds designers responsible for any abuse they end up delivering through design?
Sustainability in UX, is that even a question?
Manisha Phadke (Host)
Sustainability is associated tangible products, does digital experiences even come in its purview? When the plastic pandemic is drowning us, is sustainability in designing experiences even the need of the hour? Digital waste due to its intangibility will go unnoticed. While ‘Ethical design’ in the digital economy is the ‘urgent’ problem, initiating sustainability will design livable digital futures. Sustainable science focusses on interactions between human, environment and engineered systems. The panel discussion will center around social, environmental and community factors to recognize and question sustainability concerns in digital experiences. Beginning with dismissing some myths will move on to relaying examples and end with some probable paths to explore.
