Conference Talk

Moving from awareness to action

When people mention the word diversity, there are a lot of assumptions about what that means. What human are we centering when we talk about human-centered design? Using the lens of the Designers Critical Alphabet (created by Lesley-Ann Noel, Ph.D.), we will examine our current ideas and inferences. Next, we will discuss moving from awareness of inclusion and accessibility to understanding the right questions. Finally, we will review some everyday practices to apply inclusion and become more aware.
