Description

Cross-government service design meetup #6: Diversity for designing inclusive services

Join us for the sixth cross-government service design meetup on ‘Diversity for designing inclusive services’. On 5 December, we will meet in London again and discuss how we design services that are inclusive with teams that are diverse as possible. The event is open to all people working in the public sector interested in service design.

Unlike private companies, public organisations do not choose who they provide service to. They serve the public, that means everyone — people with all kinds of capacities, capabilities, needs, and circumstances. We will spend half a day learning about the different dimensions of diversity and inclusion, and what it means in practice to design services that work for everyone. We will discuss what our achievements and ambitions are regarding diversity in public service teams and how to increase it further. We will hear from different teams about how they provide services that are inclusive.

The event will consist of an introduction to diversity and inclusion, a related workshop, a chance to chat and have a tea or coffee with someone new. Teams from Hackney Council, Transport for London, and the Government Digital Service will share their work around this topic. The event is collaboratively organised by Hackney Council’s Digital Design Team and the User-Centred Design team at the Government Digital Service. It’s kindly hosted at Hackney House.

Please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements and if there is anything we can do to enable you to fully participate. Email ucdcommunity@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk.
