Inclusive design: The power of bias, Cardiff

About this event

The presentation will highlight specific infrastructure examples to help illustrate the importance of remaining mindful of diverse perspectives when developing designs and the danger of assumption. We’ll explore different ways to actively engage with all stakeholders, including people with disabilities and visual impairments. After the talk the floor will be open for dialogue and mindful debate and audience participation.

A buffet will be provided at 12.00 before the talk, which will start at 12.30

Sarah Burrell

Inclusion & Diversity Consultant

Sarah Burrell

I am a dynamic professional in the field of Inclusion and Diversity. I provide bespoke strategic consultancy and training to organisations wishing to thrive in the global market place, from unconscious bias training to strategy overhaul. I go beyond the legal framework and aim to challenge mind-sets through working with organisations to develop a strong business case for inclusion and diversity.

I promote inclusive design of soft and hard infrastructure and actively encourage user-centric thinking, transparency, accountability and honest communication with stakeholders, encouraging mindful dialog to avoid assumption and exclusion. I have previously consulted with The Chartered Institute for Highways & Transportation (CHIT), Department for Transport (DfT) and Transport for London (TfL).
