Session: Diverse Teams Make Inclusive Products
Our backgrounds, perspectives and personal experiences greatly inform how we shape products. Building diverse product teams is the foundation to ensuring we don't unintentionally exclude a portion of our user base, yet most tech products are still built by a very narrow representation of our global population. This session will cover how a multi-pronged approach to creating diverse teams, developing inclusive practices in company culture and in the product development process can result in experiences that support more of our users, most of the time."
