The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is an amazing hub for digital accessibility and inclusive design .
#a11yTO is all about including new people into our community at our Meetups, camp, or to accessibility in general. Our goal is to provide a welcoming place for people to learn, share experiences ideas and solutions, and to collaborate on building a more inclusive web.
If you're interested in accessibility & inclusive design, this is your home. We usually meet once a month for presentations, tech talks, demos and more.
#a11yTO is kicking off 2019 with a panel on Digital Accessibility to start the year off right. We will be exploring implementing accessibility across different sectors and organizations from multiple angles. This panel is geared towards those who are brand new to working in digital accessibility and veterans alike, with an opportunity for audience members to ask their own questions.
Our panelists include:
Jose Bonifacio, UX/UI designer
Bob Dodd, web developer
Nermeen Mikhail, manager
John Willis, strategist
Rylan Vroom, digital accessibility specialist
The panel will be moderated by your Meetup hosts: Nell and Lisa.
#a11yTO events have live-captioning.
