Getting to Resilience

What does it take to support designers and other tech workers who must constantly teach their practices from a position of lower seniority, while also doing exemplary work? Fresh from a stretch as Chief of Staff at 18F (one of the US’s two national government digital teams), Cyd will discuss fostering a culture that can continue turning out transformative work in difficult times.

She will talk about practice communities, hiring for purpose, and the role of front-line managers as keepers of culture. Cyd will share candid stories and critical learnings from a design and development practice that is changing one of the largest institutions in the world.
