Written by: Marketing

Original Presentation Date: July 16, 2020

Doing anything at scale is generally more complex and difficult than on smaller projects. With over 5,000 employees and 1,000,000 business powered by the eCommerce platform globally, no one knows that better than the accessibility team at Shopify.

In this webinar, Chief Experience Officer Derek Featherstone and special guests Devon Persing and Scott Vinkle from the accessibility team at Shopify discuss the challenges of implementing accessibility across a large organization, and tap into Devon and Scott’s unique skills and experiences working to ensure the Shopify platform is accessible to both store owners and end customers with disabilities.

Learn about:

  • Building collaboration among cross-disciplinary teams
  • Working with teams to solve common—and sometimes difficult—accessibility challenges
  • The importance of accessibility training and documentation
