Designing Inclusively For the Streaming Viewer

Date TBA

With streaming subscriptions worldwide surpassing 1 billion viewers last year, creating inclusive streaming experiences for everyone has become even more important. Streamers not only have to consider how people of all different cultures, ethnicities, genders, abilities and ages comprehend and experience content via streaming, but also have to reflect on whether their content is inclusive. Viewers are also becoming savvy about inclusion and can be unforgiving when missteps are made in experiences and content. What are these missteps and how can streamers be proactive about inclusion in the design process to avoid them? This panel will explore the unique challenges of designing inclusive experiences w/in streaming and examine what it actually means to design w/ inclusion in mind.
