Past events

In 2022, we ran monthly community events that brought members together to discuss their challenges with inclusive design and offer suggestions to tackle them.

In 2021 we ran our first conference that had topics surrounding psychological safety in research, making research and design more accessible, a panel on advocating for inclusion, diversity in the workplace, and explored case studies of inclusive projects.

Magnify plugged a huge gap in design and digital conferences, for an inclusive design event that is itself inclusive. It brought together practitioners from all over the world to share insights from different sectors and fostered a brilliant sense of community. I learned a lot about inclusive design and also made new, lasting friends – which is remarkable for an online event. And the team behind Magnify did this independently.
