10:15 AM–11:00 AM
Many of us are daunted when we first think about inclusive design and the scale of the challenges that face us. We don’t need to be afraid.
This talk is an introduction to inclusive design, its history, current state, and its future in the context of user experience design. I discuss how accessibility and UX relate to each other, as well as some first steps, examples, and resources to get started and have an immediate impact as soon as you go back to work.
Finally, I will discuss some approaches and frameworks, and how to think about inclusive UX design as you begin and progress in your journey.
Suitable for anyone who wants to create a more inclusive world.
