How innovation can create a more inclusive world


How innovation can create a more inclusive world

By embracing inclusivity, innovation can become a powerful tool for breaking down seemingly insurmountable barriers. Here’s how we’re driving this impact.

An AI tool for screening CVs that penalizes candidates for being women. Medical devices that lose accuracy on dark skin. Facial recognition technology that falters when scanning the features of minority groups. What do these innovations have in common?

While technology advances at breakneck speed, it is often designed for – and by – people who have similar abilities, backgrounds and experiences. When innovation is only powered by a few people, for a few people, it will almost inevitably crash headfirst into cultural and social barriers. 

With foresight and intentional inclusive design, however, technology can leap over these same barriers – and even help break them down.
