Panel discussion:
Design Review Culture

➡️ How we run it:

  • Total of 80 spots (Can't fit more sorry)
  • We are a non-profit, so we ask people kindly to contribute and help support the meetup group. 🙏
  • The fees also help avoid people taking spots and not coming 🤗
  • Food and drinks will be provided 🍱
  • Bring your ticket or email confirmation as we won't accept anyone without tickets.

The meetup:

Humans, in general, suck at receiving feedback.
We also suck at giving feedback, although most of those people have too much pride to admit it.
Building a safe design review culture is essential to fostering healthy product culture. We’ve all experienced highs and lows at some point in our lives; Highs left the product team curious, excited and driven. The lows left the team stuck, burned out, working in silos, and resulting in high staff turnover — not a good place to be.
We’ve gathered four legendary leaders who live and breathe in the product ecosystem to share their insights and experiences on how to build a healthy design review culture.


  • Lisi Schappi Senior Director, Design @ Deputy
  • James Nau VP of Design @ Airtasker
  • Mandar Karlekar Co-Founder & Product Consultant @ Product Rocket
  • Akina Lam Design Lead @ Raw.Studio


  • Phillippe Director & Founder @
  • Jacalin Ding Principle Design Lead at Service NSW

Join us for learning, networking, or hanging out with amazing designers!
As usual, we will have a Meet&Greet session for people looking for jobs and companies looking to hire to connect. Upon arrival at our meetup, we’re going to be handing out stickers to everyone.
These will be used to identify:

  • Looking for a Job
  • Looking to Hire
  • Here to party (meet a few people, learn a few things)

We will stop taking RSVPs on Thursday, February 2 at 5:00 PM or if tickets run out.
