Designing for Inclusivity with Antonio Grillo

The 3-day pill by Antonio Grillo, Service and UX Design Director at Digital Entity, will center around the necessity to design to avoid exclusion and foster inclusivity. The first part of the course is meant to explore the meaning of inclusion and the business value of Inclusive Design. A definition will be given, focused on reducing physical-cognitive, cultural and economical friction during the design process, and tools to reduce biases will be introduced.
The second part will focus on team dynamics and the importance to behave as an “inclusive temporary community” to capitalize on the diversity of the project team, while in the last part some design tools will be explained and practiced, all taken from the Inclusive Design toolkit created by Grillo.
The goal of the pill is to further explore the role of designers and their responsibilities, and to enable students to empathize with diversity through design tools and methodologies.
