For both moral and legal reasons, inclusive design has always been a necessary part of a design to allow a product to reach its full potential. The UN estimates that more than 1 billion people around the world live with some form of disability and as populations age over the coming years, this number is set to rise.

With the current political and social landscape rapidly changing, it has never been more important to consider accessibility and inclusiveness.

Featuring;

Francesca Granato - Principal User Experience Architect - TandemSeven

David Caldwell - Senior Digital Accessibility Consultant - Barclays

Nate Giraitis - Strategy Director - Smart Design

Ruby Steel - Senior Design Strategist - Smart design
