What we're about

We are a group of Content Strategy Practitioners in Philadelphia, who aim to exchange knowledge and expand understanding of the discipline of Content Strategy. In order to achieve these goals, we endeavor to...

• Educate and inspire content strategists;

• Evangelize content strategy to the world at large;

• Create community, large and small;

• Showcase local and regional talent, and bring international talent local;

• Enable job seekers, employers, and collaborators to find each other.

We try to maintain a roughly monthly schedule of events for collaborative learning and talks with leaders in the discipline from the Philadelphia region and beyond. We have also been collaborating with other local groups interested in User Experience, SEO, and other related topics.

See our previously recorded meetup presentation on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyVD94LQogHXsrGdkPtp4Jw/videos).

Please join the conversation!

Philadelphia's practitioners come from a wide variety of backgrounds, both traditional and new media. Most practitioners in the region do not have the title 'Content Strategist' but instead might have a title like:

Web Editor

Marketing Manager

Product Manager

Non-Profit Director of Communications

Director of Community Engagement

Writer

Freelance Content Developer

Integrating Accessibility through Organizational Culture

Everyone knows that creating accessible content and digital experiences is the right thing to do. Right for users, right for businesses, right for society. And yet. Accessibility is still mostly an afterthought, is generally limited to the bare-minimum effort, and is the first thing to get compressed or rushed or entirely cut when there’s budget or schedule pressure. Why do we have such a hard time walking our walk? Creating truly accessible websites requires that we do more than just using semantic formatting and adding alt tags to images. If we want to build accessibility into our digital experiences from the ground up, we have to start by addressing the ableism embedded in our organizations and work culture. About the Speaker: Eileen Webb is a digital strategist and co-founder of webmeadow, a firm that helps progressive organizations develop content and technology strategies to make the world a better place. Her background is in server-side coding and being that odd person who translates between the marketing and development teams. Webmeadow's offices are located on a small farm in Maine; her Twitter feed is equal parts content strategy and pictures of poultry. A11yPHL Meetup Collaboration: We're excited to be cohosting Eileen with the A11yPHL meetup. They're a group for people passionate about technology, inclusive design and disability rights. We meet to network and connect, discuss ideas, best practices and share experiences.
