Session Survey
We’re currently revisiting many of the basic assumptions and practices in design, many of which represent a skewed perspective. The more we look at DEI and inclusive design, the more we see that it is inextricably connected to all the other important goals we have in design - to address health and wellness, climate action, economic and political stability, and even our basic survival. Lighting has lagged behind the other design disciplines in this regard and is now busy catching up. This panel will explore a range of tools and actions to address inclusive design: corporate programs, education and training, cross disciplinary collaboration, and communications strategies.
