TRIGGER WARNING: Domestic Violence, Abuse, Interpersonal Safety

Eva PenzeyMoog talks about her superpower being her ADHD and ability to hyperfocus before diving into a discussion about her book, “Designing for Safety.” We talk about how technology can be weaponized for harm and that it’s not a matter of might. It’s when. She talks about what engineers, designers, and even product managers need to know when building applications, and that it is our responsibility to prioritize the safety of marginalized people over the comfort of unmarginalized people.
