Disability confidence through dignified design

Hear from Tom Bevan, Dignified Access Lead and Hayley Brooks, Customer and Employee Experience Lead as they share insights on the concepts of dignified access and co-design, highlighting the importance of embedding accessibility into all stages of the design of products, services and environments.

Dignified Access and co-design go beyond compliance with Australian Standards to provide safe, dignified and equitable access, whilst taking into consideration the user experience from the perspectives of locomotion, vision, reach and stretch, dexterity, thinking, communicating and hearing.
