Social Design Showdown: Inclusivity
Social Design Showdown presents a fascinating programme with a diverse panel and sharp in-depth debates led by our moderator Praveen Sewgobind, research professor Diversity & Inclusivity at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
Inclusivity, a timely theme that is relevant in the daily practice of every social designer. Social designers often work with historically marginalised groups of people who are neglected in society’s systems. But how inclusive is the design discipline itself? And how inclusive are social designers?
