Inclusive design has been a hot topic since the discrimination of traditional public restrooms made its way onto the political agenda last year. But inclusive design principles can and should be applied well beyond restrooms to everyday building types like offices, museums and libraries. Progressive institutions and companies that want to attract diverse audiences and workers must consider design as a catalyst for these efforts by creating interactive places to engage people of different ages, genders, races, religions and disabilities who have been left out of the equation.
This interactive happy hour and discussion explores the design consequences of this urgent social justice issue, particularly as it pertains to the workplace.
