UNdemocratizing Research

It has been an incredible couple of months for me, getting to talk with so many talented, inspiring peers. This episode, it’s time to end Season 1 of UXR Conversations with what I’m sure will be a fascinating discussion.

If you’ve been pondering about the role of researchers in organizations and the topic of democratizing research - this episode is for you!

The notion of democratizing research has been a prominent topic of discussion for a while now. I discussed it in a recent conversation with Behzod Sirjani:

Uber’s Eduardo Gomez Ruiz wrote a phenomenal Medium article about this titled "Scaling UX Research: how to train an army of (non)researchers":

So, for the season finale of UXR Conversations, I’m delighted to host Saswati for a candid, in-depth discussion about research democratization. I can’t wait to see where it takes us.

We’d love to answer any questions about research democratization in your organization, so comment here with questions, or message me…
