ABOUT US

Making life easier.

World Usability Day is single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of  professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products  important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.

It is about  celebration and education—celebrating the strides we have made in  creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability  impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is  about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We  don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and  that human error is a misnomer.

No one should have to suffer through products and services that get in their way. People should not be made to feel stupid by technology.

INCLUSION THROUGH USER EXPERIENCE

The world is changing and the climate of well-balanced and open society is not as prevalent as many of us would like. Technology is developing alongside new political changes. This is a pivotal moment in history and we can help shape the course of events by the work we do.

Well-designed user experiences allow for the uniqueness of people’s different strengths and beliefs to co-exist in a place of similarity and common ground. Tools and technologies that embrace similarities to tap into the potential of all people creates conditions that promote people to be their best selves, to cultivate and nurture people will produce better outcomes in all we do.
