The Road to Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions: How to Untangle Your Intent from Your Impact and Mitigate Harm

Tuesday, June 9 at 3:30pm EST

Intentions are not the same as impacts, and yet the business world often conflates them. Think BIC pens for women, or more life altering examples like Facebook's trajectory from a humble social hub to a global misinformation engine. These "benign" ideas, coupled with insidious cultural defaults can lead to big commercial flops, failed products, and worse.

In this multimedia and energizing talk, the founders of Project Inkblot will introduce a core tenet of their Design for Diversity™ framework to show how to disentangle intent from impact. Attendees can apply these tools to their personal work, their teams, businesses, COVID responses, and from the products/services that they are currently working on. You don't want to miss this!
