One For All: Building a Better Future with Inclusive Design

March 27 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Nearly everyone – every human body – will be affected by a disability at some point, either temporary or permanent.

Shouldn’t technology be ready?

“Disability” simply means a mismatch between an individual’s needs and what the environment provides—and with an eye on inclusive design, we can tap into new sources of talent, especially those that have been either hindered or excluded because of accessibility issues.

During this event, our panel will explore the principles of inclusive design, real-world examples, and best-practices for businesses to implement them, including:

  • Recognizing exclusion – and the challenges of problem-solving without personal bias.
  • Learning from diversity – utilizing individual differences to create a more complete picture of humanity.
  • Solve for one, extend to many – designing for disabilities has been proven to have universal benefits.

Join us on March 27th as we explore this incredibly timely topic. Tickets are free and may sell out – reserve yours while you can! #SVFInclusive
