There needs to be a way to streamline best practices from the plethora of grassroots accessibility efforts happening across the globe. The Accessible World conference hopes to do just that.
Organized by local accessibility-minded tech initiative EvoXLabs, the two-day conference is gathering international leaders in accessibility to share the motivation behind their work and how that work was done — hopefully providing a framework for those looking to do something similar.
According to EvoXLabs founder Ather Sharif, The Accessible World will not be academic. Rather, it will feel more like a TEDx conference where audiences can learn best practices and methods they can implement in their respective communities.
The conference will cover six tracks — technology, education, media, healthcare, recreation and policy — and feature lightning talks from people with disabilities.
The Accessible World conference will be held at the Free Library of Philadelphia‘s central branch from April 28 to 29. For the rest of February, there’s a 75 percent early bird discount on tickets (plus, organizations buying tickets in bulk will receive a whopping 90 percent discount).-30-
