Systems Thinking for Sustainability: Beyond Stuff Towards Resiliency
February 3, 2021

Speaker: Rachel Beth Egenhoefer
February 3, 2021 at 6:00 pm -8:30 pm
Your Own Home via Zoom

What unnecessary barriers do we all inadvertently create when we craft experiences, and who do we unintentionally exclude? These questions are core to inclusive design and served as the jumping off point for the Xbox Adaptive Controller when realizing that traditional controllers were excluding many people with motor impairments. John and Bryce will talk you through how Microsoft’s Inclusive Design principles were used to help shape the Xbox Adaptive Controller, and how you can leverage them in your own work to avoid disabling mismatches and create more empowering and inclusive experiences.
