5. Miriam Isaac - Designing a Career

Fiftyfaces Focus - Inspiring Israeli Women in Tech and Beyond

Miriam Isaac is a freelance UX designer and consultant who works with a range of companies across the US and Israel. She has worked as a graphic, and later web, designer for over 10 years. Miriam has a particular interest in mentoring young women within the religious community who have an interest in entering the design arena and in directing them to where they can learn the skills required. She was born in London and moved to Israel when she was 18 years old.In our candid interview we talk about the obstacles and prejudices Miriam encountered both within her religious community, and later in the Tel Aviv tech world where religious women are in the minority. Miriam talks about the difference between having a job and a career and how, when faced with the challenges mentioned above, she turned to social media in the hope of finding work. There she soon discovered that being a religious woman was no longer an obstacle to getting hired and so was soon able to establish a thriving career online as a leading UX designer. She also discovered a new and supportive community. We discuss how her presence on social media has inspired other religious women to take the leap into the professional world and also the vital role social media plays in terms of offering representation to minorities. In the interview, Miriam offers refreshingly honest advice to women in both the workplace and beyond, and opens up about battling imposter syndrome in the workplace as well as how her views have changed over the course of the Covid-19 lockdown. This podcast series was made possible with the kind support of Elissa Bayer and Avital Eusgeld.

Paper Prototypes: Blessing or a Curse? (w/ Top 8 Women in Tech, Miriam Isaac)

Liftoff by Bottle Rocket

On this week's episode I have Miriam Isaac. She is a Senior Product Designer, also voted one of the top 18 designer instagrams to follow in 2019, voted Top 8 Women in Tech, and has worked for Fortune 200 companies. Our conversation started as a back and forth on instagram when I posted what I call a "Designer Quick Rant" and I...in so many words, said that I thought a particular video of a paper prototype was "an egregious waste of time." Well, Miriam thought otherwise. And I wanted to continue our civil discourse, so here we are today. We also talk about other UX Design related things, so it's not all debate, people! ;)If you want to see the post we refer to, the link is here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BzyKhJ5grDT/Follow Miriam on Instagram, here: https://www.instagram.com/misaac85/Follow Miriam on LinkedIn, here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/miriamisaac/And if you would like to check out the book she references at the end, it's called "Crucial Conversations": https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Conversations-Talking-Stakes-Second/dp/1469266822-Feel free to stalk 'Experience Design w/ Tony Daussat' on Instagram at @xdpodcast -As always thank you for listening, and if you enjoy what you're hearing, please share with your friends and co-workers :) -If you are feeling EXTRA inspired, I would love for you to check out my Patreon page here: https://patreon.com/xdpodcast#staycurious
