Speaker: Denis Boudreau, Web Accessibility Strategist, Simply Accessible 

Target Audience: Everyone 

Skill Level: Beginner and Intermediate 

Overview: WCAG 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?

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will be able to: 

1. Avoid common mistakes when planning for Web accessibility
2. Break down requirements into various stakeholders roles
3. Adapt the responsibility breakdown model to their organization

Speaker Bio: Denis is a senior web accessibility consultant and strategist, working for Simply Accessible, and an invited expert of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in various working groups. He has been advocating social inclusion on the web since 2001 and has been running the annual a11yMTL conference in Montreal, Canada, since 2010. He actively tweets about web accessibility and digital inclusion at @dboudreau.
