Office Hours: U.S. Digital Service

Join us for Office Hours with the U.S. Digital Service (USDS). USDS is a small team of designers, engineers, product managers, and bureaucracy specialists working across the federal government. Through technology and design, they deliver better government services to the American people. Learn how USDS is applying a user-centered approach to solve the federal government’s most pressing technical challenges.

A panel of USDS designers will discuss:

  • How they’re improving government processes
  • What’s unique about being a designer in an environment that isn’t always design conscious
  • Ways they’re working to change the culture of design in government
  • How the work of USDS has impacted real users who depend on the government’s services
