Build in inclusion to build better products

In this episode of “Digital Now,” Jenny Lay-Flurrie, Microsoft chief accessibility officer, explains that organizations and executives are beginning to infuse accessibility into their products and services, but often at a slower pace than at Microsoft, where disability inclusion is built into everything. “We’re on the journey, but we’ve got to speed up,” she says.

Lay-Flurrie also discusses why the core principles of privacy, security and accessibility should be equally prioritized within every company, and shares a valuable lesson from her experience: “If you don’t know if it’s accessible, it’s not.”

“Digital Now” is a video series hosted by Andrew Wilson, chief digital officer at Microsoft, who invites friends and industry leaders inside and outside of Microsoft to share how they are tackling digital and business transformation, and explores themes like the future of work, security, artificial intelligence and the democratization of code and data.
