About this event

Join us at our next meetup event on Friendly Digital Spaces for Our Future Selves.

Although the requirements to meet the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) have been in practice for quite some years now, the awareness for digital accessibility has increased. However, being aware of the topic and understanding what the topic is are two different things.

For this talk, the speaker will provide a high level view on what digital accessibility is, why it is important, and some high level tips for different roles for projects.

Who this is good for:

  • Someone who has some awareness of digital accessibility, but does not know where to find more information about the topic.
  • PMs, Designers, Developers, QAs, Product owners, or any role in a company.
  • Anyone who is interested in understanding what digital accessibility is.

Whether you are an experienced professional trying to figure out digital accessibility, or someone with an interest in learning about the topic, you are warmly welcomed to join us!

What you will get after walking out of the door:

  • Understanding the different categories, types, and spectrums of disabilities.
  • Glimpses of the struggles on inaccessible digital spaces.
  • Quick view on AODA and legislations in other countries.
  • High-level tips for different roles
