:: Accessibility for all ::
There are more than[masked] people only in the Netherlands that have some sort of disability that makes it hard for them to visit and go through a website. As designers we should know what these disabilities are and how we can keep them in mind when designing. In this workshop we are going to go through the basics.

:: We are all biased ::
Cognitive biases are common in the field of design research. You may encounter them as you plan the user interviews when you conduct them, and afterwards when you, the team and the stakeholders analyse the results. In her talk, Tiia covers "seven deadly biases" that repeatedly intervene in her work (and most likely yours too, if you happen to work with humans), and provides some tips and help on how to prevent them from skewing valuable research data.
Tiia Vahla is a User Experience designer at Van Lanschot. As she began her journey in the world of Fintech and digital private banking 2 years ago, promoting empathy and the value of understanding the customer's needs became her most important duty.
Our host Sensor Lab is a foundation where experimentation and new technologies come together to create innovative solutions that make our lives cleaner, smarter and easier.

Ladies that UX Utrecht is an informal community of women with a passion for User Experience Design. Let’s meet each other, network and talk about the experiences and challenges of ladies in the area of Utrecht (men are welcome too). And we would love to meet companies in the area that work with UX, in any capacity. It’s all about sharing and a fun night with likeminded people.
Would you love to learn more about a certain subject, listen to a UX-professional tell us about best or worst practices or would you like to share an experience? LTUX community relies on your input and participation. So you have ideas or questions, don’t hesitate to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org!
