Ayesha currently works across multiple teams at Optimizely as a Senior UX Engineer, where she collaborates with engineers and designers on Optimizely’s design system, component library, and application front-end. She is also working to integrate inclusive design and accessibility best practices throughout the product life cycle, from product planning, to QA. Previously, she worked on the Lightning Design System at Salesforce where she focused on building accessible components for the engineering organization.
We often build component libraries to improve consistency, collaboration, and customization for a given product. But what if a component library could also scale accessibility across the entire organization? Building accessible components can help distribute responsibility across all of design and engineering, without needing everyone to be an expert on the nitty-gritty details. In this session, we'll explore specific component examples and use cases. Attendees will walk away with more awareness and knowledge of the tactics and strategies they can implement in their day-to-day job to contribute to a better, more accessible web.
