A conference exploring how we can live, work, and design for inclusion.

It provides an international platform for researchers, design practitioners, design educators and students, and the general public to exchange knowledge about inclusive design and to empower wider participation in design.

Designing solutions to enable people with disabilities to use automated vehicles. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) today opened Stage I of the Inclusive Design Challenge, a national prize competition seeking design solutions to make future Automated Vehicles (AVs) more accessible to people with disabilities. The Inclusive Design Challenge seeks innovative design solutions that can enable people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to use AVs to access jobs, healthcare, and other critical destinations. During two stages of competition, teams will compete to earn a portion of a $5,000,000 prize purse.

This symposium invites designers and thinkers to explore how we can design for inclusivity. How can we create great designs for the greatest number of people? How can we use our unique reality of human diversity as a resource for products, services, systems, environments and experiences that include rather than exclude? How can we continue to move beyond diversity and inclusion “lip-service” towards a tangible reality where everyone can participate in society with a sense of belonging?

In her work at Mismatch.design and Google, Kat Holmes is helping other designers to rethink inclusive design not as a remedy for “personal health conditions” but as solves for “mismatches” — moments where human interactions are hindered by an absence of appropriate design solutions. In this talk, she takes us through her journey to this approach, and how it can help us all recognize and combat everyday mismatches in the world.

Learn about a process any team can use to design more inclusively for people with accessibility needs and how Material Design guidelines, tools, and components can help.
