How to be an inclusion and diversity champion on your design team

As marginalized people in design, UX writers know what it’s like to be excluded. We also know that diversity in all forms makes for richer design. While there aren’t quick fixes to diversifying teams, there are practical ways to cultivate inclusion.

In the grassroots initiative 3D, Diverse Dropbox Design, they’ve seen what it takes to build a diversity initiative from the ground up. This talk will share ideas for sparking change within your organization, quick actions you can take to cultivate inclusion, and ways we can leverage our skills as content designers toward nurturing a more diverse design community.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Why diversity matters in design
  • Several small and mighty actions that cultivate inclusion
  • Exercises to reflect on your own experiences
  • Ways to use the craft of content to foster diversity
  • Tips for community-building with diversity in mind
