Building a better web means removing barriers for users and helping them live more productive lives. Marcy Sutton explores how the work we do with technology can have a monumental impact on the lives of people with disabilities by providing independence, privacy, and growth opportunities. But making a positive impact depends on our willingness to do the work. Marcy highlights the importance of digital inclusion in web development and offers a brief how-to, helping you remember who we’re building things for in the first place.
Marcy Sutton works on the axe-core team developing web accessibility tools at Deque Systems, a company focused on digital equality. In 2016, Marcy was the recipient of an O’Reilly Web Platform Award for her work in accessibility. She loves co-leading the Accessibility Seattle meetup and a coding club for Girl Develop It Bellingham. When away from the keyboard, Marcy can be found hiking with her dog, riding a bicycle, or snowboarding.
