“What does your digital workplace look like from an inclusivity point of view? Where are the barriers that mean people are being excluded, where they can't access something – for whatever reason – because it doesn't feel safe to them psychologically, or they're just not able to access it. I think that's why it's important to think about exclusion as well as inclusivity. You need the dark and the light, the moon and the sun, to be able to really understand the picture.”

- Shimrit Janes, DWG’s Director of Knowledge

Digital inclusivity is a way of working, a culture in which the digital workplace is intentionally made welcoming to everyone – but how can you successfully create this?

In this episode of Digital Workplace Impact, Shimrit Janes, DWG’s Director of Knowledge, shares her latest insights from The inclusive digital workplace: Part 1 – Nurturing digital inclusivity. This recent report, the first in a three-part DWG research series, is available online.

Host Nancy Goebel explores what inspired this series of reports, why Shimrit is releasing Nurturing digital inclusivity first, the difference between inclusivity and accessibility, and why ethics has also been investigated.

A key learning? You can focus on accessibility, but this doesn't mean you're creating an inclusive experience for everyone. Together, Shimrit and Nancy pinpoint great examples from the field as well as opportunities and challenges, covering the principles of good design and the value of becoming a ‘conscious communicator’.

Relevant today more than ever, this podcast offers advice and insights to help those designing and operating in digital workplaces everywhere. Listen now and learn more.
