Accessibility is a BIG topic, so let's break it down into some fun, focused, bite-sized micro-workshops that everyone can get something out of! Like speed-dating, but for inclusive development and design practices and empathy-building (swoon ❤️)!
In this session a few small, focused "stations" will be set up around the room, each led by someone who has real-world experience in the topic area. You can come and go between stations whenever you'd like, or just stick at one for the whole session if it's super interesting to you.
To guarantee that we have a few stations ready-to-go, some of my co-workers from Accessible360 (a local accessibility testing + consulting company) will join us to share their experience. If you're interested in leading (or co-leading) a station, please reach out to me so we can coordinate!
Here are some ideas for stations that you can expect (I'll finalize these closer to the event date based on feedback/interest):
The exact topics and number of stations, as well as the amount of space available, can be adjusted based on interest, so be sure to RSVP ➡️ if you're interested!
