Addressing legacy inequities through inclusive design.


Ever wondered why the line for the women’s toilet is always much longer than the men’s? Or why voice recognition systems are not as responsive to a female voice.

Many of the products and services we use today have been designed for a young, white and able-bodied “Reference Man”. The result? Poor user experiences for everyone else.

Talent systems are not exempt.

In this two-part series on inclusive design for talent systems, we look at what it takes for organizations to address legacy inequities and become a truly inclusive and diverse organization where everyone can thrive.
