Pi People #20

Online event, 5.00pm - 6.30pm

Inclusive by design: how to make your product work for everyone

How often do you see inclusive design left in the backlog? De-prioritised because it’s not for your target user group? Or added after launch simply due to changing regulations?

Successful businesses treat inclusive design as opportunity, not an afterthought. And it’s most valuable when it’s embedded in every part of the business. So how do you make inclusive design a priority for your organisation?

Hear from three speakers who’ve built propositions, designed customer experiences and implemented ways of working that all enable inclusivity – and how this has impacted their business for the better. We’ll also showcase our tool Cards for Humanity to show how it can bring more inclusive thinking to your products and wider organisations.

Sounds good right?!
