As the reliance on technology enabled products and services increase, so does the need to continuously create products at startup speed with enterprise scale. However, companies often have an imbalanced focus on the technical aspect of product development, and leave behind the needs of the users on the other side of the screen.
As designers and human need advocates, we have the responsibility to deeply understand the needs of the diverse population we are serving. Through our product decisions we have an opportunity to not only shape the future of technology, but also make products that create an inclusive digital environment. In this workshop, we’ll discuss and apply methods that we can invoke during the product design decision to ensure we are designing with intent and maintaining inclusivity as a focus and priority.
