Accessibility for the Win: Orchestrating Organizational Buy-In

Imagine an organization where everyone embraces accessibility — where they are committed to making the organization’s website and other ICT accessible to people with disabilities, where they appreciate the additional benefits of accessibility to all users and to the organization, where they approach accessible design as an exciting challenge, where they are proud of their accomplishments in accessibility. In this engaging session you’ll get a vision and practical guidance to help move your organization in that direction.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Develop a customized business case for your organization.
  • Effectively use the carrots and sticks for motivating accessibility.
  • Orchestrate successful buy-in sessions to raise awareness and enthusiasm.
  • Reach across your organization with tailored top down and bottom up approaches.

Shawn will challenge the way many people think about accessibility, and encourage a different approach. Be inspired with ideas and equipped with advice to instigate organizational change for accessibility success.
