Designer, Author, Professor & Accessibility Advocate
Reginé Gilbert is a User Experience Designer based in NYC. She is a professor at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. She teaches user experience design and assistive technology to students in the Integrated Digital Media program. Regine is the author of ‘Inclusive Design in the Digital Age: Designing with Accessibility in mind.’
Reginé’s talk will focus on making the business case for inclusion and accessibility, with many practical tips to get started right now. And we’re broadcasting it on Global Accessibility Awareness Day: we’re doing our best to raise awareness.
Rather than scaring people with threats of possible lawsuits, Reginé makes a truly compelling case to start from accessibility and inclusion by default. There are so many real-life examples where the adoption of inclusion from the start actually resulted in a financial gain: so let’s start from the positives. And if you think that making the products you build properly inclusive is just too big a task, Reginé’s here to change your mind: start from best UX and design practices from the beginning, and you’ll be most of the way there. The reality is that once you become aware of the incredible impact that inclusive design can have, you’ll make it your mission to make it a default feature of all your future projects.
