Driving Inclusive Design in Your Organization

Inclusive design is continuing to grow as a focus for companies looking to the future. Inclusivity can mean many different things, from individuals with challenges: visuals, dexterity, hearing, cognitive abilities, and speech -- to situational impairments, activity limitations, participation restrictions, and identity. We all have personal biases. This is why experience-driven practices involving users throughout the product design process is so important. How do you get your company on board to make sure recognizing exclusion is key to your process? How do you include inclusivity in your day-to-day?

This panel will discuss how to get your organization on board so that your products work for all people!
