June 9: Explaining Anything to Your Boss & Grandboss

Join us on June 9 as Amanda Costello from the University of Minnesota presents on how to build advocacy for user experience and ensure that your voice resonates with leadership.

When you’re asked by your boss, or your boss’s boss (your grandboss!) to explain your work with the web, what do you say? How can you build advocates for user experience in people whose pay grades eat pay grades like yours for breakfast? This is the situation Amanda Costello found herself in when her great-grandboss asked her to speak about her work to senior leadership. Spoiler alert: Nobody was fired.
