For nearly a decade, we’ve hosted the John Slatin Access U conference, devoted to all areas of web accessibility — and we’re happy to do it.
Web accessibility, for those unfamiliar, is the umbrella term for designing and creating websites and web content in ways that ensure people of all cognitive and physical abilities can use the internet effectively.
This year’s Access U took over Trustee Hall from May 17-19 with the theme of Empathy in Leadership. (Fits nicely with our mission at St. Edward’s, don’t you think?)
More than 250 people from nonprofits, state and local government, education and business joined us on campus to learn from leaders in the web accessibility field — and share their own accessibility know-how.
But you don’t have to be a web developer or designer to understand and practice accessibility. You just need to care about making the web helpful and usable for everyone.
