Expand Your Lens: How Inclusive Design Benefits Everyone

Technologist Blog Post 1400 x 900

The Inclusive Design Toolkit developed by Cambridge University states that “inclusive design is a design process… in which a product, service or environment is designed to be usable by as many people as reasonably possible, without the need for specialized adaptations.” Inclusive design considers different aspects of human diversity such as ability, language, culture, gender, and age.

As technology leaders, designers, developers, and implementers, you reflect the world as you experience it, naturally leading to bias and exclusion without intent in the products you create. Participants learned more about dominant culture informed design, design process from experts who look through a different lens, and resources to continue designing more inclusive and accessible products and were introduced to the Technology Association of Oregon Technologist Community co-chairs, Nadya Duke Boone and Dahv Kliner.
