Accessibility at Google: Lessons Learned

Building with and for the disability community ensures that we’re able to create technology that can level the playing field and make the world a more accessible place. In the past ten years, I’ve had the opportunity to lead Google’s Central Accessibility team, building it up from a grassroots effort to a cross-company initiative. Along the way, I’ve learned many lessons about gaining buy-in and prioritization for accessibility across a large organization and setting up an organization, tools, and resources to help our product teams be successful. My hope is that some of these lessons resonate with you as you drive progress in accessibility in the companies you work for.

What the axe-con 2023 participants said...

"I've attended so many conferences over the past 25 years, and this is by far my favorite. Attending virtually makes it accessible for me. Congratulations to everyone who worked on Axe-Con 2023. Well done."

"I had never attended an a11y conference before and this one hands-down raised the bar on content, topics and speakers. I have attended numerous online webinars and conferences but this one by far was very well thought out and executed in terms of the quality of content. As interest in A11y grows and more and more companies begin to start taking it more seriously, I believe this will be the #1 conference that you can't miss for all things A11y."

“This is an incredible learning opportunity that Deque offers for free, I'm so grateful for their generosity. It has helped me in numerous ways, from teaching my team to advocating for budget. Deque has contributed to making my organization better.”
