About the speaker
What is Inclusive Design and how can it become a powerful tool for innovation? What does it mean to be truly people-centered and how can we conduct a successful design-led user research involving a diverse range of people? These are some of the questions that Onny Eikhaug will answer in this month CreativeMornings talk. Inclusive Design is about acknowledging and embracing human diversity and the solutions resulting from it can be more innovative, relevant and user-friendly. Plus, it can impact not only the work of designers and architects, but leaders, decision-makers and practitioners in all fields of society. Let´s learn from it and contribute to a better, more sustainable and inclusive society!
