DEC810S - Mismatch: How Inclusion Shapes Design

Session Description

It may not be immediately obvious what the business case is for shifting toward inclusion, but the market opportunity is exponential. Consider the objects and tools around you: the adjustable chair at your desk, reading glasses, the touchscreen on your mobile device, your computer keyboard, email, flexible straws. All of these are ubiquitous and deeply integrated into our daily lives. But did you know that these tools are descendants of innovations that were created to remedy exclusion? In an ideal world, every product or solution would be employ inclusive design from the start. But there is no one-size-fits-all approach to practicing inclusive design. Each company needs to incorporate inclusive design when and where it can in ways that complement its existing processes. **Kat will be hosting a book signing and Q&A in Xtropolis on Tuesday, June 11th from 3:00 - 4:00pm. Please visit the book signings area near the Tech Shop to meet her!**
