The disconnect between the better world you imagine as a designer and the reality of what you feel capable of changing can feel demoralizing. At Dropbox, designers follow a rigorous research process that sometimes reveals surprising, seemly-small findings with big implications. Listening to these small learnings can help build conviction about how the world can be better. Anisha Jain will share how this process of learning has helped design lead big changes at Dropbox, including re-branding, leading the brand's efforts towards a gender-balanced team, and designing more humane ways of working.
