The world we live in is for everyone, but are we designing with that in mind? A quarter of all New Zealander’s live with a disability, and with an aging population, that number is growing. It’s time to recognise the power of technology in creating a more accessible world – with tech and good design, we can change the world.

Join us on Tuesday 19th of November to hear from those experiencing the impact of digital innovation and how we can incorporate inclusive design into our daily thinking to create a more accessible future.

Speakers:
Chandra Harrison – Access Advisors
Philip Patston – Managing Director at Diversity NZ
Grace Stratton – All is for All
Kramer Hoeflich – Vaka Tautua
Anne Boothroyd and Scott Maddox – Creative Directors @ YoungShand – #Alttextforall | Blind+Low Vision NZ

Doors open at 5:30 pm, followed by:
– Networking, food & drinks
– Speakers and Group Q&A / Mini panel discussion
– Community announcements
– Wrap-up & drinks for a 7.30pm close

We’re shaping the future we want to live in.
We hope you can join us!

Tech for Good New Zealand is a network bringing together those interested in how technology is used within social impact projects and organisations. Whether you are a charity, community group, social enterprise, tech whizz, digital marketer, or just someone interested in social tech, these events are to help make these connections and create a supportive, collaborative community around tech for good and enabling social impact in Auckland and beyond.

Our events are informal and foster discussion with a mix of speakers from innovation and social change organisations, and case studies from across the social impact sector. There will be opportunity to share ideas, your projects, your challenges and opportunities and we also encourage those across the digital tech and creative industries to get involved and share experiences and knowledge on technology as an enabler for change.
