Different Is the New Normal: Why Everyone Benefits When We Design for Disability
(Webinar sponsored by PDTG)

Abstract: Designing for average no longer works. Instead, we should be designing for difference - and people with disabilities provide us with deep differences. The audio books that you listen to on your commute to work, the keyboard that you type on, emails that you send hourly, if not by the minute, remote controls that you use in your presentations, the captions that you view while watching Facebook videos, were all originally designed for disability but are loved by everyone. Why is innovating around disability so powerful? Because when we design for disability, we create the superpowers that we all want – to do more, to hear more, to see more, and to go further. We learn how to create ability in the absence of natural, human ability. During this keynote, Elise shares powerful and moving personal stories, inclusive design principles and business examples to empower and inspire participants to design for disability to develop groundbreaking solutions.
