Usability Philippines and De La Salle University – Manila celebrated World Usability Day by holding a symposium aptly entitled “Designing for Social Change”. This event was held today, December 2, 2011 at the Waldo Perfecto Seminar Room of DLSU – Manila.

The goal of the event was to bring together a number of professionals to discuss aspects of usability that focus on advocating social change. Around a hundred individuals attended the symposium.

I was very fortunate to be invited as one of the speakers in this event.
