Inclusive Design: David Caldwell (Barclays)


Discover how to design for the vulnerable with Senior Digital Accessibility Consultant David Caldwell of Barclays.

 

”Designing for Vulnerability’

For both moral and legal reasons, inclusive design has always been a necessary part of a design to allow a product to reach its full potential. The UN estimates that more than 1 billion people around the world live with some form of disability and as populations age over the coming years, this number is set to rise.

With the current political and social landscape rapidly changing, it has never been more important to consider accessibility and inclusiveness.

Introducing David Caldwell – Senior Digital Accessibility Consultant – Barclays

David joined Barclays the newly formed Digital Accessibility Team in 2013. As well as supporting product teams across Barclays to deliver accessible and inclusive experiences, David also leads on the training and development of colleagues in accessibility and inclusive design and Barclays accessibility outreach programme which includes supporting community projects such as London Accessibility Meetup.

Designing for vulnerability – Vulnerability is something we can all relate to – whether it’s losing our jobs, fluctuating mental health issues or the loss of a loved one. When vulnerable we may need a different experience, different support or restrictions in how we use a product. In this talk we’ll explore what we mean by vulnerable circumstances, look at how we could build in friction for those who find themselves vulnerable and look at examples of good practice in this space.

David Caldwell was speaking at a UX Crunch meetup.
