We will be running two sessions on Wednesday 11 March:
– 3:00pm – 5:00pm
– 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Ensuring the accessibility of your digital products can feel daunting, especially when you’re already faced with budget constraints, pressure to deliver faster and unknown technical dependencies. But with strategic planning and a deeper understanding of accessibility, not only will your products and UX be better, but accessibility will exist as an integral part of your process.

Following on from our Inclusive Design & Accessibility Meetup at the end of last year, this is an introductory session for those who need to know the benefits and the basics – why accessibility is important on the web, how to get buy-in from your business and how to make it happen.

Tech for Good NZ has partnered with Dr Chandra Harrison from Access Advisors to bring you this exclusive workshop – specifically designed for Product Managers, Marketing Managers, Publishers, Producers & decision makers.

Following the session, you’ll be able to:
– Explain who benefits from accessible design and how
– Understand why it matters from a legal, moral and business point of view
– Understand and identify ten top accessibility issues
– Apply the basic principles of accessibility
– Find resources to help build your knowledge
– Build the business case to prioritise accessibility efforts
