A note about fees

To help our members avoid disappointment at not being able to attend due to no-shows, we've decided to start charging a small ticket price.

All the money will be donated once again to Avon Needs Trees - https://www.avonneedstrees.org.uk/

Nikki from Avon Needs Trees will be coming to say hello too and let us know what happens to our donations.

Thanks for your understanding.



Talk 1 - WCAG.next

Alastair Campbell, Director of Accessibility at Nomensa.

An overview of where we are with the next iteration of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.2. What new guidelines can we expect in WCAG 2.2? And how does this relate to Silver, the proposed successor to WCAG?

As co-chair for the W3C’s Accessibility guidelines Working Group, Alastair has the answers. Join us to find out.



Talk 2 - Designing for everyone: Creating accessibility guidelines for designers at Nationwide

Courtney Toth, UI Designer at Nationwide.

Nationwide are working towards creating inclusive digital products and services as standard. As part of this, they developed internal guidance to help the digital creative teams focus on inclusive design from the outset. Courtney talks through the objectives, challenges and outputs of Nationwide’s internal accessibility guidelines project, and the long term benefit that accessible and inclusive design will bring for all 15 million of Nationwide’s members.

Courtney is an accessibility and inclusive design fanatic. By day, she works as a UI Designer at Nationwide Building Society – creating engaging, user-orientated digital products. By night, she streams video games and works on her own creative projects.
