4 Tips from Disability:IN Partners
1. Commit to Self-Learning
Leaders trying to drive accessibility agendas should commit to self-learning. Commit to listening to and understanding the lived experiences of people with disabilities. Commit to making incremental change every day.
2. Target Accessibility in Your Respective Area
Understand the area that you’re in and drive accessibility in this area. Understand the requirements of your respective area, educate the product owner, and focus on ways you can drive impact here before broadening out.
3. Be Intentional and Inclusive
Be intentional about inclusivity and building a team that is representative of the population you’re building for. Nothing about us without us. Be intentional about including people with disabilities at every phase of the process.
4. Explore What Others are Doing
