Creating Accessible solutions for people with disabilities, and Inclusive Design has taken the front seat in the last few years. While Accessibility standards exist for more than two decades, it is still a daunting task to follow them as there are more than 70 standards. Often designers, product owners, and developers feel that it's a considerable effort to implement accessibility standards.

In our organization, we have taken the "Shift Left" approach by including Accessibility into the Design Process. The integration of Accessibility in Design Systems has produced multiple benefits. In this presentation, we will share tips to achieve significant results for Accessibility and beyond.

Both presenters have deep expertise in Accessibility and Design Systems, respectively. Both presenters understand the need to answer questions and allocated time for the audience to get clarity on the subject.
