Inclusive warnings: Involving everyone in warning processes
This briefing note explains how inclusive warnings must be designed to support people to fulfil their own needs for warnings. No group is homogenous, whether a specific gender or a general category such as people with disabilities. Preferences for and abilities with technology and interpreting information differ, so warnings should cover a variety of modes, messaging, exchanging, and formats.
It stresses the importance of listening – as everyone has something to contribute and to learn; of representation – so that society’s diversity is always involved; and redundancy – using multiple media, forms, and formats to reach as many people as possible.
