Inclusive Design Symposium

Inclusive Design Symposium

Join Mount Ida College for a 2-day event focusing on accessibility and usability in design, featuring a Design-A-Thon, where teams of faculty, staff, students and professionals will design and display their creations.

The Symposium will feature members of the New England community including students and faculty, interior designers, architects, care-givers, and community members with or without disabilities. Participants will enjoy speakers and participate in team empathy exercises, while using design as a medium to move beyond stereotypes and build compassionate, practical solutions. Guest speakers will include Brett Heising from brettapproved.com, Valerie Fletcher, Executive Director of the Institute for Human Centered Design, and GRIT.

This event is open to the public and everyone is invited to participate. Click here for more event information and submission details!
