AccessU at CSUN2012: Communicating the Vision of Accessibility throughout the Enterprise

On Tuesday, February 28 at 1:30 PM, you’ll have a chance to learn about “Communicating the Vision of Accessibility throughout the Enterprise” from two of the top experts who have particular knowledge in this area of Web accessibility.

Understanding Web accessibility standards and guidelines and how to apply them is one thing, but negotiating your corporate culture to institutionalize accessibility as a practice is an entirely different journey. Using their own experience, leading their company’s Web Accessibility Initiative, Margy Bergel and Ann Chadwick-Dias discuss approaches to integrating accessibility at a large financial services corporation.

They’ll discuss

  • Working with your users with disabilities
  • Understanding accessibility standards and making them your own
  • Engaging your organization
  • Integrating accessibility into your processes
  • Metrics and measuring success

Margy and Ann consistently offer practical advice for large corporations that will enable you to implement accessibility most effectively and strategically. You’ll leave their presentation feeling ready to reach out to customers with disabilities with innovative approaches that will help make your site easier to use for everyone.

So, if you’ve been having some trouble figuring out how to implement accessibility in your corporate or other large organizational-setting, sign up for this workshop, along with others that will be held as part of Knowbility’s AccessU at CSUN 2012. We look forward to seeing you there and to working with you, in the future, to make your Web presence as accessible as it can be.
