Exploring the role of design in enabling inclusion in the workplace
Inclusive design, in the context of the workplace, is all about creating places in which everyone can participate - but how inclusive are our workplaces for people of all ages and abilities?
With more people identifying as disabled than ever before - yet with just 46.3% of disabled people currently in employment, and an ageing population - 1 in 4 of us will be aged 65 and above by 2040, with more of us working for longer, we think it’s time to rethink workplace design to be more inclusive of diverse users - whether employers, employees, visitors or volunteers.
So how inclusive is your workplace? Please take a moment to answer a few questions and share your experience to help us understand what role design could play in creating workplaces fit for us all.
