I know, I know. Accessibility seems like a thing that we should do... but it's sometimes uncomfortable to talk about and it feels like there aren't that many people who need it anyway... right?

Wrong. About 1 in 5 Americans reports that they have some kind of disability - from hearing impairment, vision impairment, mobility issues to mental disabilities and more. What does this mean for you and your company? It means that if you're not creating sites, services, and products with this group of people in mind, you're letting go of a multi-billion dollar market share. It also means that you're missing opportunities to be innovative leaders in your space. It also - finally - means that you're about to be breaking the law. Did you know that companies like Target and Netflix have been successfully (and expensively) sued for failure to create and maintain accessible sites? Well, they have. And we don't want that for you.

We're putting on a seriously hands-on workshop to help people from all ends of all companies think about this topic. Building the Accessibility Roadmap is a hands-on workshop. It is not a panel, or a lecture, or a networking schmooze event. You will leave with a real plan that you can implement. If you, your department, or company is ready to start thinking about the "accessibility question" - whether because it's the right thing to do or because it's the law - this workshop is designed to take you through our proprietary tool and roadmap system that points the way forward. You'll leave with actionable tasks, not just ideas or theory.

When: Tues. Aug 4th at 6-8:30pm Where: 52 LTD Who: Anyone interested in learning more about actionable accessibility

If you're ready to start planning AND doing, this workshop is for you. We'll cover a bit about the law, but the workshop is really geared toward helping you develop a real plan and approach for creating your company's accessibility roadmap.
