Designing for a global audience requires digital designers to prioritize inclusion, accessibility, and sustainability. This involves creating products and services that cater to the needs of all users, regardless of their abilities or location. To achieve this, it’s crucial to embrace inclusive principles that consider users’ diverse needs and perspectives, including those from different cultures and backgrounds. The key is to create intuitive interfaces that are easy to use. This talk will explore accessibility, inclusion, and design experiences within organizational ecosystems. We’ll begin by discussing the importance of accessibility and inclusion and the negative impact that exclusion can have on individuals and organizations. We’ll also highlight the benefits of embracing inclusive design within ecosystems.
