How would you define HX and why it is important to your life’s work?
At the core of what I do and what I teach others is pursuing and living out a value-driven mindset and behavior. To me, this is the core of humanity-centered design. This relational focus not only communicates to others they have inherent worth and dignity as human beings, but brings congruence to our own life choices as we strive to serve on mission in everyway we care for and interact with others.
