Ensuring diverse audiences feel included in our organizations, professional communities—even through use of our product—is both good design and good business. But for many practitioners, launching initiatives that authentically serve diverse audiences are often met with many roadblocks and have few rules to guide their efforts.

In this moderated discussion, we want to empower participants to begin—or continue—to create products and programs that place spirit of inclusion at its core. We've asked leaders with diverse perspectives from start-up, consulting, public sector, and non-profit spaces to share their stories on what Designing for Diversity means to them and how they've gone about creating cultures of inclusion in their organizations.
