GAAD is all about getting people talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion. The UX design community has a particularly important role to play in this, but knowing just where to start can be tricky, if not downright intimidating.
Phil Robertson, a seasoned UX consultant who’s worked with the likes of F1, BMW, UBS, Apple and Rolls Royce, knows all about designing for accessibility and finding those elusive starting points.
Matteo Belfiore writes accessibility semantic and accessible code for the web. Currently working at The Dots as Senior Frontend/UI Developer, he’s on the frontline when it comes to implementing accessibility standards.
Rochelle Dancel Design Lead at Idean will share here tips for being a good ally in a large organisation: how we keep accessibility and vulnerable customers front of mind in our work at Centrica.
This is a ticketed event (VAT inc.) and all the money collected will be dedicated to opening other UX for Change chapters around the world (we’re currently activating NYC and Berlin). We won’t be able to offer refunds if you’re unable to attend, but we might be able to share a video recording after the event.
UX for Change will be hosting this special GAAD event at Softwire, 110, Highgate Studios, 53-79 Highgate Rd, Kentish Town, London NW5 1TL. Join us from 6:00 pm for drinks and chat, with our speakers starting at 7:00 pm.
Food, fun and a friendly atmosphere will, as always, be provided.
