Towards more diverse research operations

We are well aware that inclusive design and research can feel overwhelming and intimidating. Often, it may be hard to know where to start. However, if this initial barrier to getting started with inclusive research can be broken, we believe that you’ll find it easier to carry on creating more inclusive experiencesIn this talk, Laura and Jen offer some tips on how to get started with exactly that. 

They cover:

  • Remote moderation.
  • Confidence training to help researchers respond to difficult research situations.
  • Addressing your own discomfort in research.
  • Creating a culture of shared stories and learnings from attempting to carry out more inclusive research.
  • How hiring more inclusive design talent can help you recruit more inclusively into research. 
In this talk Laura and Jen reflect on their experience of working towards bringing inclusivity into research operations.
