Beyond Accessibility: Designing Inclusive Content

Most people hear accessibility and think of it as a box to check, and a responsibility that falls on developers and designers. But it’s often content that breaks an experience for people with disabilities — or anyone who doesn’t fit neatly into a traditional persona template.

In this interactive workshop, attendees will walk away with practical and actionable ways to make their digital content better for everyone. You’ll walk away with:

  • ● Content accessibility best practices, and how to go beyond the basics to create inclusive digital spaces
  • ● Why accessibility and inclusivity matters from a business perspective (and how to get other people to care)
  • ● A personalized content workflow with inclusivity action steps you can take at every stage in a project — whether you’re a writer, designer, or strategist
