Inclusive Research – Making research accessible to people with disabilities

Inclusion

Webinar Thursday, 25 February 2021
The slides and recording will be made available over the next few days.

When designs are inclusive, everyone wins. Curb cutouts facilitate wheelchairs, baby strollers, and rolling suitcases. Smartphone interfaces that can be operated with one hand work for people with an amputated limb, a broken arm, or a heavy bag full of groceries.

What about the research informing these inclusive designs? The research we do to inform and test these designs should also be inclusive. How do we apply these same principles to UX research and how do we get our companies and teams on board?

In this session, Lauren Isaacson highlighted the foundational understanding of people with disabilities, discuss why we should make our research inclusive, and show how to best make our research accessible to people with disabilities. When we conduct research inclusively, everyone wins.
