Design Museum Mornings with Kristen Ransom, CEO, and Founder of IncluDe.

Kristen challenges technology to be inclusive and equally accessible to all. By redesigning the way industries offer their services and developing more inclusive software, Kristen proves that it’s not only ethically intelligent but also profitable. Technology will change the world, but only if it’s accessible to everyone.

Join us in April for Design Museum Mornings at Hill Holliday for a light breakfast and great conversation about how to design for more inclusive tech.

Doors open at 8:30am; Presentation begins at 9:00am.

Kristen is the CEO and Founder of IncluDe, a digital strategy company that provides strategic and graphically stunning web design services to small businesses and purpose-driven organizations. Kristen founded IncluDe with a two-fold mission: (1) to make a powerful online presence more accessible to small business owners and (2) to make a career in web design and development more accessible by training and hiring a diverse team

The IncluDe team has worked with everyone, from the neighborhood soul food restaurant to larger organizations like, OneUnited Bank, that seek to empower small businesses as well. In just the past 3 years, IncluDe’s accomplishments have been featured in countless renowned publications including Forbes Magazine, The Root, The Bay State Banner and Narcity with Kristen most recently being featured on EssenceNow.

Prior to starting IncluDe, Kristen used her love for user-centered design at a variety of companies including Harley-Davidson, MITRE Corporation and the Department of Transportation, to develop both hardware and software products fit for an increasingly diverse world. Kristen’s mission is to promote diversity and inclusion through diversity in design. “We’re trying to change the face of tech,” Ransom says, “and this time, everyone’s included.”
