Inclusive, Accessible Principles for Product Teams | Wednesday, 07. October 2020

Make better products using inclusive and accessible principles, taking lessons from the disability activism movement & human-centered design

About this Event

Everyone should be able to use your software, but accessibility hasn’t always been top-of-mind for product teams. That ends now. Join Raquel Breternitz, Lead Product Designer at The New York Times, for a discussion on how to make better products using inclusive and accessible principles, taking lessons from the disability activism movement and human-centered design. You’ll learn:

• Why digital accessibility matters

• Why inclusion is one of the fastest ways to a great design and good business

• How to build cross-functional teams to take action immediately


Attendees will receive a calendar invite with Zoom dial-in instructions after registering for the event (if you RSVP less than 3 hours before the event, you will receive instructions 30 minutes prior to the event). Effective immediately through at least June 1, Startup School workshops will be conducted virtually as part of a larger NYU effort to not bring large groups of guests and members of the NYU community together in a single venue.

Please note that current students & faculty will be required to show NYU ID. Alumni and the general public may purchase tickets to specific Startup School events when available.

The NYU Entrepreneurial Institute provides reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities. Requests for accommodations for events and services should be submitted at least two weeks before the date of the accommodation need. Please email email for assistance.

Startup School is a workshop series, led by industry experts, designed to teach you in-demand startup skills and expose you to essential entrepreneurship topics. Learn more about the series here.
