Diversity & Exclusion

A remote conference on design and exclusion, today, April 21st, at 16.00 UTC

Exclusion can be driven by conscious hatred. But we sometimes also fuel it with our own ignorance. Designers may not be able to address the former, but the latter opens up multiple directions for change.

To explore these opportunities, we’re gathering design and technology leaders whose expertise spans industry, startups, nonprofits, and research labs. We’ll convene here online on April 21 to discuss how the design of technology platforms excludes people. By focusing on exclusion, we want to push ourselves to think differently — and together — about building more welcoming and inclusive products.
