Web Accessibility Overview

This design system aims to support Western's efforts in diversity and inclusion by ensuring web content is accessible for all users.

Western's digital content creators can support this mission by using components built into Western's themes, being aware of evolving web accessibility guidelines and requirements, and adopting accessibility as an integral step of content development.

Every design decision has the potential to include or exclude people.
