May 9th is the inaugural Global Accessibility Awareness Day. A website will be launched in coming days, however, for now you can visit their Facebook page.


Events are being held all around the world and include breakfast meetups, presentations and social gatherings.


Sydney's Event...


The Sydney Web Accessibility & Inclusive Design (SWAID) meetup will be hosting a social event in the evening where we will visit a number of accessible bars and pubs around the Sydney CBD - For research purposes of course! Our aim for the evening is to select a suitable, accessible venue for our first SWAID Salon: An evening of inclusive presentations and discussion.


Please RSVP for the event on our event page
