Welcome to Works In Process w/ George Garrastegui, Jr. / Ep 27
Train for the skill the industry needs:
I think it's an education problem. There's a ton of diversity on the planet. I think there's a skills gap that these companies are looking for. This caliber of talent. The same thing (happens) with the NBA, the NFL, with any professional league or organization.
If you're not grooming or training certain communities to be able to develop those skills, then you're not gonna see them at the end result— I think that's what it is. So I would say yes, there's a diversity problem in tech, but I think it's a bigger problem with lack of education and lack of skills training."
That’s my guest, Fonz Morris :
In this episode, host George Garrastegui Jr. chats with Fonz Morris, a self-taught creative, discuss being a Growth Design at Netflix and how they get customers to value the service and stop password sharing. Also, Fonz shares the value of UX research that focuses on how design is more than a visual medium and the industry needs to expand its definition.
I want to thank Fonz for taking the time out of his busy day in Cali to chat. It’s so interesting to hear how Netflix is a consumer-first business and the power that research plays in ensuring it can solve users' problems in ways that make people see value in their service.
