NARIMAN GATHERS does process. They turn the mushiness of humaning (being a person) into discrete, discernible task flow. Nariman has used this superpower to help design communications identity at Code2040, build and sustain distributed teams at GitHub, manage incident communications at Slack, and tackle some of the nation’s most pressing issues with the ACLU. Currently, they helm the design ops program at Plaid and teach design process at Stanford’s D.School, Fordham University, Converse College and the New School at Parsons. Nariman is the recipient of the 2022 Converse University Young Alumni Prize and a TedX Speaker. They are a proud plant dad, a champion for neurodiversity, and will cry about friend-shaped objects.
