Planning and Delivering a Diverse User TestInternational Association of Accessibility PartnersPaidAccessibility TestingEnabling people to access digital information in an accessible way is why we do what do we do as accessibility professionals.

Organizational Change and Accessibility, Overcoming the ResistanceInternational Association of Accessibility PartnersPaidOvercoming resistance to accessibilityIn recent years, there has been a growing interest in integrating accessibility into product development lifecycles and other organization-wide processes. In stark contrast to the task of solving technical IT accessibility problems, it is a difficult task for many practitioners to overcome the sorts of non-technical 'people problems' during new accessibility initiatives. In our field, there is a very small well of advice on this topic from which to draw at present. Practitioners will inevitably encounter resistance. How can they successfully deal with individual, team, managerial and executive-level opposition? Drawing from personal experience and the experience of consultant colleagues, as well as the literature, and from published methods, this webinar will include practical examples and provide advice for overcoming resistance to accessibility initiatives.
Successfully Integrating Web Accessibility in Your Organization's LifecycleInternational Association of Accessibility PartnersPaidIntegrating Accessibility into the OrganizationWCAG 2.0 has been with us for over seven years, yet organizations are still struggling to provide Web experiences that are accessible to people with disabilities and the elderly. For most organizations, Web accessibility is nothing short of a nightmare. But does it really need to be? Accessibility requirements challenge development practices and jeopardize a project's profitability. As accessibility affects every contributor, it is not advisable to base its liability on a single person’s shoulders. Sharing responsibilities between different specialists is the key to making accessibility happen. What if the only things an organization needed were a roadmap, a strategy and the right mindset?
Increase Your Influence, Build Your Career - Scaling Accessibility from Specialist Niche to Business-as-UsualInternational Association of Accessibility PartnersPaidIntegrating Accessibility into the OrganizationAccessibility professionals are driven by wanting to get organizations they work for or with to prioritize accessibility across all their digital products. They become skilled at understanding the needs of disabled people and the technologies they use to access websites and apps. They become skilled in accessibility testing and finding solutions to accessibility issues. They find success helping colleagues use WCAG 2.0, and may become their organization’s "accessibility superhero," relied on to deliver accessibility over an increasing numbers of products, day in and day out. But they are also likely to have frustrations where products they worked on didn’t live up to their values, as the people they were working with didn’t share those values. They want help to fight for accessibility more effectively, to get it taken more seriously, so they’re not the only one pushing for it in their organization and so accessibility becomes “just the way we do things around here.” This webinar gives them the framework to make that happen and build themselves a sustainable career path before all their passion and energy burns out.
