Resources on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We reconsider the design process with the notion that
if it doesn’t work for someone,

it doesn’t work for everyone.

Why its important

With more than 1 in 5 Canadians (more than 6.2 million people)  over the age of 15 living with a disability, it is critical that digital services fully accommodate the diverse needs of all individuals with impairments and provides equal access to health, learning and work opportunities in an increasingly digitized world.

Our Commitment

IncluCity Calgary is committed to a proactive approach to ensure barrier-free services are provided. 

IncluCity's Resource Hub

We've put together a document below that brings together a few resources that might interest you, including the following themes:

 

  • Humane/Good/Social Impact technology

  • Inclusive design

  • Accessibility

  • UX research and design

 

Keep in mind:

The document is adaptive and open-source(ish). We will periodically update the document with additional resources, remove the old ones and accept submissions for resources on an ongoing basis. 

 

Do you have any other resources to share? Don't be shy! You might inspire someone after engaging with your article, page, podcast, or movie. Submit any links to uriel@inclucitycalgary.ca
