    What we're about

    This group is for anyone interested in inclusive research, design and development practices. This includes accessible design and development, user research that involves people with disabilities in a holistic, integrated fashion as well as compliance with international standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

    Through our meetup, we want to:

    • Evangelise - increase awareness and understanding of accessibility and inclusive design

    • Normalise - help everyone to build inclusive experiences so it's just 'normal'

    • Simplify - communicate simply so that accessibility and inclusive design is easy to understand

    • Support - bring people together so we can share, learn and support each other

    If you would like to get involved or have any suggestions for our meetup, please contact the organising team.
