Inclusive Design Case Study

Erin Grandmaison RGD

About this video


As in-house designers, we must design for a diverse world. Diversity and inclusion work demands that we think broadly and deeply about the multiplicity of lenses through which individuals view and experience the world: age, ability, ethnicity, gender, race, sexuality and socioeconomic background, to name a few. Join our presenters as they share in-house case studies and discuss considerations when working to design for diversity, inclusion and accessibility. This case study from Bruce Power discusses a diversity and inclusion initiative in its Indigenous Cultural Awareness and Engagement Program. Through the design of the initiative, goals of fostering community collaboration and building relationships are brought to life. The project is in alignment with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business' Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program.
