Technology plays a dominant part in shaping lives. We have seen how advances in technology have changed society beyond our imagination. As tech creators, it's time for us to take a step back and consider the impact of what we are building.


The Designated Dissenter is a card deck designed to spark conversations about the impacts of technology. They'll allow you to consider the externalities of tech from a human values perspective, and help foster open feedback culture within your teams.


This deck will be available for download and use in May 2020. Leave your email address if you want to be the first to try this out!

Nice! You'll get updates and receive the PDF on release day.

I'm Shirley Lai, a part time student in Hyper Island's MA in Digital Management course. As part of my thesis, I am researching tech and design ethics, and the ways organisation and team culture play a part in ethical conversations. This card deck is born out of an experiment from my thesis. Discuss these topics with me, or find me on Twitter where I talk about tech ethics, UX design and UX writing.
