Earlier this month at DesignThinkers Vancouver, we saw designers come together to learn and have conversations about the crucial topics affecting society and industry alike. Below we share slides from six presentations catapulting us to design a better future.
Members have access to full presentation decks in the Members-only section of our website.
Developing a Critical Lens for Inclusive Design
Tammy Tsang, Co-founder, AndHumanity
In this talk, Tammy demystifies what inclusion looks like in marketing. She explains how designers can work with their teams to develop and create more inclusive work and outlines how to develop a critical lens for identifying processes and design that cause erasure and learn how to begin to apply more inclusive design practices in a broken system through safe and brave spaces in co-design.
