I'm Vivianne Castillo!
I bring 10+ years of psychology and research experience spanning multiple contexts, cultures, and industries, and my work and opinions in this space have been written about in Slate, Fortune, ELLE Magazine, Fast Company, and the Huffington Post.
I’ve always struggled with the jargon and cliches of our industry around being human-centered. Coming from a counseling and human services background, where I tackled issues like shame, empathy, vulnerability and compassion, I recognize that while we can’t control what is happening around us, we can control what’s happening within us and how we proactively work and address deeply human problems to improve the world around us for the better.
When you engage HmntyCntrd, you become a member of a community that is curious about what could be, a community that embraces new conversations, opportunities, and practices that will deepen the way human-centered experiences are defined.
My hope for this experience is to bring together UX and Tech professionals who want to move beyond the jargon and cliches of our industry so that we can create an equitable, inclusive and more humanity-centered future.
The corporate playbooks used to combat organizational trauma (and why they're not enough).
If UX is all about empathy and caring about users, why don’t we care for ourselves the same way?
For an industry that prides itself on being experts in valuing and understanding people, it never ceases to amaze how much we talk about empathy & human-centered design in comparison to how little we talk about the challenging personal work necessary to achieve it.
