EGA Spring Panel Discussion 2021
The UCD Engineering Graduates Association were delighted this year to welcome a panel of experts to deliver the EGA's Spring Panel Discussion on 'Inclusive by Design: Applying Inclusive Design Methods to Engineering’, on Thursday 11th October 2021 at 6pm.
Inclusive Design leads to better communities, better workplaces, better buildings, better families, better governments, better cities, better education and healthcare: better everything! Inclusive Design is at the heart of all Equality, Diversity and Inclusion efforts, yet the keys to the method are not well understood in the Engineering disciplines overall. Four top speakers on the Inclusive Design philosophy and its methods and ethos will share their views in this first-ever UCD symposium on the subject, inclusively designed to help engineering graduates to build better inclusive careers and futures!
The event took place virtually as an online webinar due to the current public health restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. A recording of the webinar is available below to view online.
- Professor Jutta Treviranus, Director of the Inclusive Design Research Centre and Full Professor at the Ontario College of Art & Design University.
- Professor Sambhavi (Sam) Chandrashekar, Inclusive Design Lead, D2L and Brightspace, Canada; Adjunct Professor, OCAD University and York University, Toronto; former faculty member in Inclusive Design at OCAD University and University of Toronto.
