Discrimination is complex and not approachable as a problem that we define and solve easily. It is difficult to understand how we reproduce it with our daily practices. In this talk, I would like to give a short introduction to structural discrimination and focus on how I as a UX Researcher sometimes fail and sometimes succeed to create more inclusive structures in my daily work. My goal is not to provide the „Top five things you can do to stop discrimination“; it is to share the journey I made so far accepting ambiguity in a world where we treat complex problems as they were more simple than they are.
