About Event

​​✨February 2023 Community Jam✨

Centering the voices, needs and lived experiences of marginalized communities is essential to any inclusive design project.

But what are the risks involved in openly sharing lived experiences? What does that look and feel like for designers and end users who are part of marginalized communities?

How much vulnerability can we encourage and where can it go wrong? How do we create boundaries and safety measures?

We'll explore this topic together in our February Jam session on "Lived Experiences in Inclusive Design."

What to Expect
This session will be shaped by contributions from attendees — we encourage you to share your experiences, your challenges and ideas, no matter your degree of experience with inclusive design. Our host Sandra By Design will guide the discussion through a few discussion prompts.

To allow for open discussion and sharing, this jam session will only be recorded if and every attendee agrees to it.

Accessibility & Inclusion Considerations

  • ​You can choose to lean in and actively participate or step back and follow along in silence.

  • ​You can join via desktop or mobile — we'll adapt any tools we use and facilitation techniques to however people connect.

  • ​We will provide closed captions, live transcripts and live transcripts to the best of our ability.

​Please send us any other accommodation requests upon signing up and we'll do our best to honor them!

​​📚 If you can't make it, we'll send out a recording (if all attendees consent to this) afterwards to all those who register as well as our community members.

​​Who are we?

​​We are the Inclusive Design Jam, an inclusive design learning community committed to making the access and use of products, services and environments equal to all. We meet in monthly jam sessions and in our Slack group to explore and workshop topics related to inclusive and equitable design.

The community and jam sessions are proudly hosted by Sandra Camacho (She/Her), aka Sandra By Design, an independent inclusive design consultant and educator based in Paris, France.
