DCLead Track: TECMAN
BSc: Information Technology from Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Indonesia
Worked as: Digital product designer with people manager experience at Traveloka
I have chosen DCLead because:
Are we designing the right thing? In a fast-moving world where digital technology is harnessed and designed to better our lives, innovation emerges to transform our lives at a faster rate. Having designed for millions of Indonesians and witnessing the impact take shape within just a few years has personally made me realize the rapid transformative impact of digital technology. However, as we rush to design technology to better our lives, our inseparable interactions with it turns back on us and designs us—collectively shaping our future. DCLead gives me the opportunity to reflect and criticize upon this phenomenon from the many perspectives of the people, the technology, the business aspects, and how it all comes together along with its ethical and social implications. The holistic and well-rounded view provided by this program complements my interdisciplinary background of technology, design, and leadership—making DCLead a valuable addition that I need to help me in designing the right thing for our future.
