You've Been Coded Out

“You’ve Been Coded Out” workshop explores the importance of inclusive product design and provides practical and actionable tools and strategies for incorporating inclusivity into product development from inception to execution. Participants have the opportunity to engage in breakout room sessions and group discussions to share their personal experiences with inclusive design, their interests in the topic, and their ideas for approaching case studies. Through these discussions, participants gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with inclusive product design and development, and learn how to lead with curiosity and take intentional action to create solutions that meet the needs of diverse populations and the future of global tech. “You’ve Been Coded Out” workshop begins with a brief introduction of the concept of inclusive product design and development and why it is essential in today's rapidly evolving global technological landscape. Dr. Dédé Tetsubayashii will then delve into real-world case studies to highlight the importance of taking a human-centered approach to product development and involving marginalized groups in the design process. Participants are encouraged to engage in active listening, ask questions, and be vulnerable in their learning creating a safe and inclusive learning environment. Each breakout room session provides participants with opportunities to connect with others and share their insights and experiences related to inclusive design. The group discussions focus on identifying common themes and brainstorming practical solutions for addressing the challenges of designing for diversity, equity, and inclusion in today’s world. Lastly, the workshop explores the "Solve for one, extend to many." Principle, emphasizing the importance of designing processes and products with the needs of marginalized individuals at the forefront and then scaling those solutions to benefit the needs of all. Participants will learn the importance of mitigating risks associated with exclusionary or discriminatory processes, in their products and practices, which can harm both individuals and society as a whole. Trust & Safety professionals have a responsibility of harm prevention, by prioritizing inclusivity and accessibility in their development processes, they can help to prevent these harms from occurring in the first place.
