Design with intersectionality in mind

Designing beyond accessibility, sex, and gender. This TED talk will make you think.

Applying an intersectional approach helps you assess the potential impacts – positive or negative – of initiatives based on their multiple identity factors, enabling you to identify risks, and potential challenges at an early stage and create mitigation strategies. Applying an intersectional approach should be done at all stages of an initiative, from development to implementation. Considering and identifying the diversity and multiple identity factors of people helps us to innovate and to consider issues and policies in a different way.

Time to save government as I say everyone morning….

Ultimately, content planning, organization, usability, and governance for online systems — and the human-to-human interactions they facilitate — affect the lives of people who use them every day. If the content strategy is bad, so goes the citizen experience.
