1.3 billion people, or 16% of the world’s population, experience some form of disability, whether it be vision, mobility, auditory, or neurological-related.

Those living with these different abilities face many challenges when shopping for and using beauty products, due to the general lack of accessibility in the beauty industry since its beginning.

That’s why this year, The Estée Lauder Companies Accessible Beauty Hackathon, Hack4A11y, is focused on ideating and developing accessible and inclusive solutions for the challenges that people with disabilities face in their beauty experience every day. Accessibility is about creating solutions that empower everyone to partake in what the world has to offer.

One of the important current trends in technology is user experience (UX), which focuses on improving technology’s effectiveness and ease of use for consumers. Today, technology accessibility is fundamental for ensuring a positive user experience for all people. What will you develop to create a more inclusive and accessible beauty experience for all?

If you’re not a developer, but you have an idea, there is a track for you! In addition to the traditional hackathon, Hack4A11y will offer an Ideathon, which allows teams to submit no-code, idea-based projects that demonstrate design thinking and innovation.
