Designing for Inclusion
Friday, December 11, 2020 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (MST)
One in four Americans has some sort of disability that impacts how they understand, navigate, or interact with the world, including the digital products and services they use. It’s all too common to speed through or skip designing for “edge” or “corner cases” like these. But taking the fast or easy way out is actually a disservice to everyone, not just those with disabilities. In this virtual Tech Talk, inclusive designer Alexandra Dean Grossi will show us all why experiences that are accessible and stronger for those with disabilities are better for everyone else too — and how to start creating them.
She will share the basics knowledge and tools for inclusive design, including:
• The spectrum of persons with disabilities (PWDs) to help us understand the high-level and specific needs to consider
• The proper language for talking about disabilities
• Ways of approaching design for inclusion
• How we can act as advocates for people with disabilities Join us to learn, ask questions, and gain a new perspective on making the experiences you create more accessible to all.
