Design Museum Mornings with Maggie Foley, VP Experience Design at Hill Holliday.

Technology has the power to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – but only if it’s accessible to everyone. In this talk, Maggie will discuss how inclusion and accessibility must be primary objectives in the design and development of the emerging technologies that will shape our world if we hope to have a more just society and equal economic opportunity for all.

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.
