Accessibility at scale: creating a culture of inclusive design within your Agile organization

Maryland B

Inclusive design is the practice of designing solutions to be accessible to as many people as possible. While it feels great to think about doing, it can feel overwhelming to think about implementing – especially across multidisciplinary teams of designers, developers, and testers in a fast-paced, agile web-based environment.

In this session, you will learn how to make accessibility part of your organization’s design, development, and testing practices. We’ll share ways we’ve partnered with these teams to bake accessibility into the tools they use (such as design systems and libraries) resulting in more accessible solutions out-of-the-box, how to make the case for accessibility, and how we’ve addressed common challenges in enterprise and government projects.
