The world is more complex and entangled. Decisions in all domains are becoming more difficult and fractious. How can we find creative strategies to navigate the complexity and circumvent the unexpected risks?
Inclusive Design advances accessibility, and encompasses the full range of human diversity including ability, language, culture, gender and age. Inclusive Design recognizes that we aren’t all the same. Design must be usable, flexible, and customizable among other qualities to be truly inclusive. From policies, customer service, infrastructure, technology, buildings to everyday products—we can design so that everyone can participate fully.
