7 Principles of Inclusive Design

Resource Default Image

Making our digital products inclusive to employees, potential employees, and customers doesn’t stop at compliance with accessibility guidelines such as the Web Accessibility Initiative’s (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) .

In fact, making our technology accessible should be business as usual. To make products inclusive, we need to think beyond compliant code, keyboard access, good contrast, and text alternatives by taking into account how people with disabilities experience our products.

The Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) Inclusive Design Principles are a set of 7 considerations to help inform design thinking. They are not a set of “how-to’s,” but rather a framework that can be used alongside established accessibility guidelines while developing products to move beyond compliance.
