Preparing and Recruiting Designers for an Inclusive Society

Plenary Address, Inclusion By Design
Montreal, Canada June 2, 2001

Founding Director, Adaptive Environments Center


Thank you. I'm honored to be here and to share my values about preparing and recruiting designers for an inclusive society.

In order to have inclusion by design, we need to involve users of all ages, abilities and economic status, so that whatever is designed - buildings, products, information - welcomes the participation of everyone.
