Description

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) UX Section will be hosting World Usability Day at their Belconnen office on Wednesday 8th November 2017 and invite you to attend.

2017 is the year of Inclusion through User Experience.

Well-designed user experiences allow for the uniqueness of people’s different strengths and believe to co-exist in a place of similarity and common ground. Tools and technologies that embrace similarities to tap into the potential of all people creates conditions that promote people to be their best selves, to cultivate and nurture people will produce better outcomes in all we do. Thus, Inclusion through User Experience draws from these principles to generate products and services that both improve user experience and promote inclusion.
