    Accessibility for Designers

    with Stéphanie Walter

    Full-day workshop • Thursday, October 12, 2023
    In the early stages of product development, accessibility considerations are frequently ignored. Accessibility is mistakenly considered a problem to be resolved down the line, often put on the shoulder of the development team.

    But accessibility is the responsibility of the whole team. Including designers. And a lot of accessibility issues can be already foreseen and prevented during the design phase. As designers, you hold the power to shape product roadmaps by including accessibility best practices in your designs and advocating for accessibility features.

    This practical workshop is designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills to design products that are accessible and user-friendly.
