"It’s been said “if you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it”. I advocate for a concept I am developing called ‘Inclusive Retail’. After my diagnosis, I began to wonder why her eyeglasses were fashionable when my cane and all other assistive products were stigmatizing. Inclusive Retail aims to inspire designers and retailers to make and market products for all needs. I believe thoughtful design can improve and save millions of lives while fueling an emerging market the size of China. I believe if retailers can see people with disabilities as consumers, they will also be able to see people with disabilities as hirable: Inclusive Retail is equality through the marketplace. What’s your stigma? What’s your passion?"
Social change, by design.
