Inclusive by Design: Bridging the gap between theory and practice

June 23, 2023 @ 08:30 - 10:00

Poster for the event Inclusive by Design: Bridging the gap between theory and practice

In recent years, many organizations have introduced mandatory Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging trainings and various internal and external initiatives to address the identified challenges. But the potential of driving true inclusion and belonging goes far beyond that.

When we create or amend a service, product, digital tool, or anything else – it can be inclusive by design. It is possible to start creating in a way that ensures inclusion and accessibility for ALL people.

But what does that mean in reality?

Join Diversify and Designit to learn about inclusive design and how to translate your theoretical understanding of DEIB principles into practical action, which can drive meaningful change and foster a sense of belonging for all individuals. We will share our thoughts and tangible examples of how to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

Join us for this breakfast seminar on June 23 at 8.30 am at Akersbakken 12. This session is free to attend. It is a hybrid event.

Breakfast included. The agenda for the morning and speakers will be announced soon!

This event is FREE to attend.  Please register HERE.
