About this webinar

This course, "The Future of Design: The Necessary Rise of Inclusive Design" encourages dialogue and shares methods to adopt Inclusive Design approaches within the daily practice of design - while seeking to inspire industry professionals to imagine an inclusive world that is powered by your creativity and sense of humanity.

As our world becomes smaller and smaller, humanity aspires to: provide care, work, play and live connected experiences that are more meaningful. As designers it is our responsibility to create considerate environments that support this quality of life for all. This is the Future of Design.
