Keynote (45 min):

When accessibility meets inclusion
- Molly Watt, Accessibility and UX consultant, keynote speaker at Molly Watt Talks
I am passionate about Inclusive design for all. Accessibility has for too long been over-looked, it’s time to put it firmly at the top of your to do list and I’m going to tell you why…

Food:
We will be serving food and drinks. It will be vegan/vegetarian. If you have any preferences when it comes to food or drinks let us know!

Accessibility:
All speakers will use a microphone and there will be sign language interpretation. We are working out the details around this at the moment and will provide more info soon. The venue has an elevator and a ramp for getting up on the stage. We are aware that accessibility issues are diverse and there might be a problem that we are not aware of. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us.

Video:
The event will be filmed and available to watch over and over again after the event 🎥

Photography:
There will be people taking photos at this event. We will however have an area in the audience marked as a "no photography zone" where you can hang out if you don't want to be caught on photo.

Safety and inclusion:
We have a Code of Conduct that we expect everyone to follow. You can find it at our website: https://t12t.se/code-of-conduct/

Svenska:
Alla dragningar på scen kommer att vara på engelska. Om du känner dig obekväm med engelska så är du självklart välkommen ändå! Det kommer att finnas gott om människor att prata svenska med.
