Ben Truelove
Principal Designer at Microsoft
Jeff Zundel
Senior User Experience Designer, Accessibility & Inclusive Design at LinkedIn

I am a social psychologist currently working as a games user researcher on the Xbox Research team at Microsoft. I use my expertise in human behavior, social interaction, and designing and conducting behavioral research to provide insight on user needs and preferences for Xbox's first-party studios. I have a developed skill set in both quantitative and qualitative analysis, using a wide variety of methods - heuristic evaluations, usability studies, group playtests, panel surveys, interviews, and fieldwork - to provide deep, actionable insight to game development teams.My background is social & health psychology, with a specialization in advanced statistical and research methods. Before I worked on games and tech, I spent several years investigating how people's social interactions and behavior influenced HIV risk behaviors, drug abuse, and mental health. I've also worked as a statistics and research methods consultant, advising scientists and professionals on the design of research projects and analysis of data.

About the talk

At Microsoft we believe inclusion is a key driver of economic growth and when your ambition includes everyone, you need to be open to feedback from anyone. In this session we'll share some best practices, lessons learned, and questions every program manager, developer and designer should be able to ask themselves and their teams to ensure we're building products that are inclusive by design.
