This talk was given at IDEO’s Inclusion and Equity Workshop Design Camp. The camp was made up of high schooler’s who were interested in design.
My presentation was geared to be more high level, because this could have been the first time they had heard of inclusive design, or how to design for people with disabilities.
The quick tips at the end of the presentation were included due to the students having a week long design project that needed to also think about accessibility.
