Designing for Inclusion
TICKETS & INFO ON THE D+G SITE: https://www.designersandgeeks.com/events/designing-for-inclusion Please note that you must have a ticket from the D+G Site (purchasable through our Eventbrite) to attend. RSVP'ing on Meetup alone will not get you in. ------------------------------------------ Designing for Inclusion Price: $20 Design, particularly design in tech, tends to focus on impact. How can your design work affect the most change in the world? How can design improve lives? To have the most real-world impact, the design industry is learning that inclusion is key. When scaling digital design requires mass participation, it's crucial to design for the entire range of people who your design is intended to impact. In this episode of Designers + Geeks, we'll hear from designers who are thinking about designing a more inclusive world and how they are approaching inclusion in their work. Special: we are co-hosting this event with Women Talk Design. Our friends at Ueno have made t-shirts to support the event, and all proceeds from the shirt sales will go to Women Talk Design. Also, Dribbble and Ueno have graciously offered to sponsor Women Talk Design workshop scholarships. We thank them for the support of this great organization. More on the Women Talk Design events can be found here. ***** ANITA CHENG | Content Designer at San Francisco Digital Services Ivan Cash is an award-winning creative director + director who believes in the power of human connection.
