Breaking Down the Bamboo Barrier

Jay Demetillo

About this video


Jay explains how to design with empathy and inclusion for Asia (and potentially the rest of the world) while stepping outside your privileged Ivory Tower. As someone who has worked in Silicon Valley, China and Southeast Asia, he shares his observations, personal stories, struggles and successes with the culture clash he’s faced, along with breaking down the “bamboo ceiling.” Are Western design teams, companies and communities as inclusive as they say they are? Watch and find out.
