Because of advances in technology and the widespread use of the internet, people with disabilities are now able to participate more in shopping, social activities, gaming, and society in general.
With 12-17% of the U.S. population identifying as having a disability, there is a large market share that needs to be taken into account seriously as direct consumers and clients. With 2 in 7 households in the U.S. having at least 1 person living in the house with a disability, purchasing decisions can be influenced by whether products are accessible or not. In order to capture that market or be competitive, a company must practice Inclusive Design across its business units and communicate that to its customers.
Brian will help break down the key areas of a business that need to practice inclusive design and what they need to do, how to influence those groups, and tell his stories of both success and setbacks in developing accessibility and inclusive design programs at multiple companies.
