Abstract: Seventy one percent of the world’s population live in countries where inequality has grown and the pandemic increased socioeconomic disparities and discriminations. As emphasised in education, healthcare, and migration, fostering an Inclusive Attitude is needed. The Inclusive Attitude is a concept mainly debated in psychology, sociology, anthropology and it has received less attention from a design research perspective. This paper proposes a theoretical framework for using Design for Inclusion to support Inclusive Attitude among the society. Starting from literature review, the paper compares the Inclusive Attitude concept with orders of design, design contents, design domains, continuum of design approaches, and domains of disciplines of Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE). As a result, a conceptual framework is identified for studying the Design for Inclusive Attitude. Discussions and conclusions underline the essence of this new design approach.
