Refresh Boston is proud to announce that it will host Global Accessibility Awareness Day on March 21 at Fresh Tilled Soil’s offices in Watertown.
Over the course of the day, Refresh co-organizers Fresh Tilled Soil and Future Insights will be releasing short videos on Twitter from members of the web community who have made careers in accessibility.
At the meetup, we’ll have our traditional kick-off discussion and refreshments starting at 6:30 p.m. Starting at 7 p.m., we’ll have five-minute lightning talks from Boston-area web accessibility professionals on a variety of topics, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with the audience.
So please come with questions and insights about making the web available and easy to use for all, and bring your friends and coworkers. We’re all in this together!
Here are our lightning talk and panel participants so far, with more to come!
GAAD started in 2011; the purpose is to get people talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility and users with different disabilities.
