Visual Tools for Lean Six Sigma
Industry: All Industries
Keywords: Color Blind, Visual Tools
Level: All Levels
Color blindness or color vision deficiency is any deviation to normal color vision for the red-green axis, the blue-yellow axis or both. Approximately 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women are color blind. Color blindness is typically hereditary, but some illnesses or eye injuries can cause temporary or permanent color blindness. Unless a color-blind person tells you, you will not know they are color blind. With the heavy reliance on color for Visual Tools, Metrics, Presentations, and other Lean Six Sigma Tools, we might have a blind spot for color blindness. Going forward we need to adjust our processes so that we are inclusive of those who are color blind. Attend this session to learn strategies for being more inclusive for those with visual impairments.
