Welcome Remarks & GoalsWelcome to User Interviews’ YouX! UXRs have never been more in demand, or more stressed. They need support, education, and connection. They need ways to be effective without just working more, harder, or figuring it out on their own. Today, we will identify those obstacles, share stories/experiences/lessons other professionals have learned along the way, and hear best practices for creating a healthy environment for this work.
Centering MomentLet’s begin today with a few minutes of grounding ourselves, and opening up to discussions, questions, and themes for today.
Wellness and UX: Going Beyond the User Experience (Keynote)The research process can be stressful. Balancing user needs and business goals is a unique challenge, and understanding problems from a different perspective takes time. In this session, discover how to put mental wellness at the forefront of your approach: create meaningful and impactful experiences for others, while also creating healthy and long-lasting practices for yourself.

Reframing the Imposter Syndrome (Fireside Chat)Imposter syndrome seems especially present in the UX community: there’s always more to discover and with more questions comes more uncertainty. Self doubt can affect anyone despite their experience or skill set, and recent mass layoffs within the industry can bring even more insecurity. Join us for a frank discussion on imposter syndrome - learn how to address it, and pivot from challenges.
