GitHub Launches Accessibility Champions Program to Drive Inclusive Development

GitHub Logo

GitHub has embarked on a journey to enhance accessibility by establishing an in-house Champions program, empowering employees to drive accessibility efforts within their teams. Recognizing accessibility as fundamental to creating an inclusive digital experience, GitHub expanded its internal accessibility program and scaled up its assessment process to cater to users with disabilities.

The Champions program, launched in response to increased assessment demands and the need for decentralized accessibility ownership, focuses on comprehensive training and community engagement. Beginning with a modest group of engineering champions, the program gradually expanded, fostering collaboration, camaraderie, and a culture of inclusivity across different disciplines.

Feedback-driven iterations, including more interactive experiences, synchronous training sessions, and customer roundtable discussions, have been pivotal in refining the program and enhancing its impact. GitHub's commitment to accessibility extends beyond internal initiatives, aiming to inspire broader industry adoption and advance a more inclusive digital future. Through continuous improvement and collaboration, GitHub reaffirms its dedication to accessibility and inclusion, paving the way for meaningful change in the tech community.
