Designing with empathy

Capabilities: Inclusive Design

Are you Designing with Empathy to include everyone?

Inclusivity is not merely a box-ticking exercise for organisations that want to be seen as ethical. It’s a commercial opportunity and a legal necessity for those that want to become sustainable and profitable in business. 

It’s a mutual journey towards a fairer and more fruitful future for all because it means intentionally including everyone in digital experiences and not inadvertently (and unlawfully) excluding up to a fifth of the world’s population because of poor design. 

At Kin + Carta Connect, we live and breathe this ethos of Designing with Empathy (DwE) and it’s how we’re making the world work better for everyone. We know that inclusionary thinking paves the path to progress and profitability - and this is only the beginning.

Why accessibility matters to your business

If you’re an inaccessible business, you’re potentially excluding a huge global market, causing damage to your brand and alienating existing and prospective talent.

According to a recent Forrester report 47% of millennials – soon to be the largest group in the workforce – consider diversity and inclusion a key decision maker in their choices to apply for a role.
