We are psychologists, visual designers, human factors engineers, front end developers, computer scientists and others.

Inclusive Design Thinking Workshop
Date: Thursday November 9, 7:00-9:00PM
Abstract: An introduction to Inclusive Design Thinking through an experiential learning activity that introduces thinking about accessibility and inclusion in functional terms. Participants will learn to see their world with new eyes and become more aware of accessibility barriers which were previously invisible to them. Participants will learn about Accessibility Cloud an open source effort to provide accessibility information worldwide.
Participants should wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather as there may be outdoor activities as part of this workshop. We will not just talk the talk, but we will also try to walk the walk during this workshop.
