EGA Spring Panel Discussion 2021

The UCD Engineering Graduates Association are delighted this year to welcome a panel of experts to deliver the EGA’s Spring Panel Discussion on ‘Inclusive by Design: Applying Inclusive Design Methods to Engineering’, on Thursday 11th October 2021 at 6pm.

Inclusive Design leads to better communities, better workplaces, better buildings, better families, better governments, better cities, better education and healthcare: better everything! Inclusive Design is at the heart of all Equality, Diversity and Inclusion efforts, yet the keys to the method are not well understood in the Engineering disciplines overall. Four top speakers on the Inclusive Design philosophy and its methods and ethos will share their views in this first-ever UCD symposium on the subject, inclusively designed to help engineering graduates to build better inclusive careers and futures!

The event will take place virtually as an online webinar due to the current public health restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Registration for this event is required – please register online now.

Speaker Profiles:

  • Professor Jutta Treviranus, Founder/Director of the inclusive Design Resarch Centre and Inclusive Design Institute and Full Professor at the Ontario College of Art & Design University
  • Professor Sambhavi Chandrashekar, Inclusive Design Lead, Brightspace and Desire2 Learn, CanadaVisiting Faculty, OCADU Toronto andUniversity of Toronto; former academic supervisor on the Masters of InclusiveDesign at OCADU
