Befriending Imposter Syndrome w/ Max Masure

Welcome to Works In Process w/ George Garrastegui, Jr. / Ep 30


That’s my guest, Max Masure. Max is a senior inclusive UX strategist and author who promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion within organizations. They share their journey of overcoming imposter syndrome and finding their purpose in life. Max discusses their work with the All of Us Research Program, which aims to gather health data from underrepresented communities. Max also talks about their book, “You Don’t Suck,” and the importance of self-reflection and recognizing one’s accomplishments. In addition, Max highlights the need for organizations to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in order to meet the changing demographics and demands of the market. They also discuss the future of the DEI landscape and the importance of community-centered design.

Max’s upcoming talk at the What If Summit will focus on their process of redesigning the homepage of the All of Us Research Program to create a more inclusive and community-centered design.

We hope you enjoy it!
