Event description

Description

Join us for a conversation on evolving design systems to be inclusive, accessible, and empowering for all users and cross-functional teams. Understanding and appreciation for accessibility and inclusion can vary wildly from team to team.

Design systems leaders from Lyft, LinkedIn, and more will share their methods and learnings on how to go about designing a system around situations, how quality principles and guidelines adapt, why accessibility, legibility, and tap targets matter, and how to tackle your design system from a situational perspective. We will also discuss how to approach technical accessibility for your system and tips on how to leverage your system for the greatest accessibility impact in your organization.

More speakers and details to be announced soon.
