Disability & Design

Speaker: Cynthia Bennett (UW Human Centered Design and Engineering)
Date: Aug 14, 2019
Grant: ADEPT
Cynthia's work brings stories of design by people with disabilities into the design profession. her motivation was sparked by a contrast she found. Design and engineering materials often present people with disabilities more narrowly as technology users. But through her research and reading Disability Studies scholarship, she has learned that disabled people regularly contribute to design and engineering fields. During the webinar, Cynthia will share a response to this inequity aimed at better recognizing these contributions.
