The principal of Inclusive Research by Design is Logan D. A. Williams. Previously, Logan taught university courses for four years at Michigan State University. Currently she teaches part-time at University of Maryland, College Park. Now, she is training business professionals, technology professionals, artists and designers to utilize inclusivity mainstreaming in her series of courses on inclusive technology design. These new courses emphasize anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-ableist, or anti-transphobic approaches to creating new devices, infrastructures, and software.
Logan has a multi-disciplinary background in Mechanical Engineering and the interdisciplinary social science field called Science and Technology Studies (STS). Because of Logan's previous work on gender-mainstreaming at UNEP, training as a disability justice ally, and past research and teaching on science, technology, race and gender, she is particularly well-prepared to enhance the inclusivity of: technology designs, research protocols, research team practices, or research problem selection. Logan (and her co-author Thomas Woodson) invented an auditing technique to address inequality in science and technology called "inclusivity mainstreaming" which you can read about in the journal Minerva (or as a pre-print on SocArcXiv).
Danielle volunteers with Inclusive Research by Design developing a marketing and social media plan. She is a retired military officer with ten years of management experience in construction, human resources, and civil affairs while in the Armed Services.
