This document is a place to find and contribute inclusive design resources you have come across. If you found something interesting, the chances are that someone else will find it interesting too! Why not share it?
The intention of this page is to begin exploring how we gather, compile, and share inclusive design resources in our daily contexts. This will help us discover new and better ways of accomplishing these tasks.
Aside: This document was originally titled: "Community Meeting Notes (Jan 24, 2018) - Pooling and Sharing Inclusive Design Resources"
Your feedback will help us discover new ways of sharing and contributing inclusive design knowledge.
