About This Episode
Jutta Treviranus pushes back against cultures, policies, and technologies designed only for those deemed “normal.” As founder and director of the Inclusive Design Research Centre at Ontario College of Art and Design, Treviranus works to challenge and improve the way we build software, make large scale decisions, and govern. If only the majority matters, she says, innovation is stifled, and there will always be people left marginalized. Designing a future where everyone counts requires a different calculus.
“It’s not the majority that tells us what are the disruptive moments. You can see it in what are the innovations—all of the innovations came by looking at the edge and by trying to address the needs of the edge.”
