Conferencing and Collaboration Diversity and Inclusion
This session is about creating equity for an accurate representation of varying skin tones on video conferencing. Google has done extensive work in designing systems and spaces that look to create equitable experiences for all users. This session will share research and engineering done by Google to further VC equity in physical space types and also while working remotely. This work has resulted in guidance, best practices, camera qualification and design, along with lighting design. Through this case study you will gain awareness of what it means to create an equitable experience, how to test for it, and how to promote lighting and equipment specifications that create equitable experiences for everyone.
