Digitalks webinar: How To Scale Digital Accessibility & Cater For Diverse Audiences // Friday 26th November at 10am AEST

Digitalks webinar: How To Scale Digital Accessibility & Cater For Diverse Audiences

Online

Join Aquent Australia's free webinar on “How To Scale Digital Accessibility & Cater For Diverse Audiences”.

1 in 5 Australians are known to have a disability, but that number is increasing due to an aging population of 20% over 65 by 2030. This is a large market, with less than 1% of businesses serving these potential customers. Creating an inclusive future therefore is critical and involves adjusting the way Accessibility is woven into your product lifecycle so it can be scaled across your digital eco-system.

In this 45-min webinar, Ben Pintos-Oliver, Digital Systems and Accessibility General Manager at Telstra will cover:
- How to avoid 30x the cost to go back and make your product accessible
- How to leverage a Design System to do the heavy lifting and scale Accessibility
- Understanding the importance of ‘Disability confidence’ to drive cultural change
- Measuring Accessibility and using new data to gain buy-in from the business

Date and Time:
Friday 26th November at 10am (AEST)
