Accessible design is a hard-fought battle on screens and in streets: many people with disabilities are often barred from both digital and physical communities, in large part because the designers creating those spaces didn’t consider their needs in the process.
Take housing, for example: in order for housing to be accessible, it needs to be affordable—but it also needs to be accessible across disabilities too.
We’re partnering with The Kelsey to discuss what disability-forward design looks like; what accessibility design looks like in both housing and tech, and what the two spaces can learn from each other.
Join us on Thursday, October 28th, 12-1pm PT to learn from accessibility design experts about their work and how we can develop housing policies and design standards to ensure that housing is both affordable and accessible for all.
The webinar will be moderated by Hannah Holloway, Senior Policy Manager. Panelists include:
- Allie Cannington, Manager of Advocacy and Organizing at The Kelsey
- Cam Luck, Interaction Designer at Google
- Nicholas Sanchez
More panelists TBA.
