Diversity, Equality, Inclusiveness
Universal Design is a “global movement of inclusive design practice," according to the Center for Universal Design at North Carolina State University.
It guides the development of environments, products, and communications so they’re usable by everyone, "to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design" and places a high value on "diversity, equality, and inclusiveness."
