Stronger Together: Developing an Organizational Strategy for Accessible Design

To celebrate GAAD, we are discussing our Accessibility Initiative at BORN. Embracing accessibility challenges our creativity, fosters responsibility, and drives innovation towards more inclusive designs and experiences. But to truly bring accessible design practices into our work, we need everyone on deck: from sales and product managers, to researchers and strategists, to designers and developers. In this talk, we’ll discuss the importance of developing a cross-functional accessibility team and some suggestions for getting started. We’ll also walk-through our own journey to build the accessibility team at BORN – from stakeholder interviews to roadmap development and cross-functional teamwork.
