Session Summary

Design systems are growing in popularity, and for all the right reasons. We’ll explore how digital accessibility works in a good design system.


The design system team at Thomson Reuters works vigorously to ensure our digital products and apps are accessible to everyone. But getting here hasn’t been easy. We’ve had to convince executives why accessibility must play an essential role in our design system. We’ve had to make individual components accessible and provide documentation, so issues don’t pop up in our products. We’ve also acknowledged we can’t fix all accessibility issues with our design system. We’ll share our story, and we hope you’ll see familiar issues that you can solve when you head back to work!

Practical Skills

  • Prioritizing accessibility in your design system
  • Ensuring individual components are accessible
  • Aspects of accessibility that a design system can’t fix
