Our next ‘Ask the UXperts’ session is all about an amazing journey into digital accessibility.
Amir Ansari and Kelly Schulz are partners in appsforall – a project that seeks to help people create more accessible apps. Their target audience is product owners, app developers and designers. Their mission is to provide the tools, resources and guidelines necessary to start the process of re/building apps with accessibility and inclusion in mind.
In this session we’ll
- learn how they’ve approached educating and building empathy amongst their own teams
- find out about their challenges and how they approached them
- talk about how we can lead the way with understanding our responsibilities and implementing good processes
If inclusive design is a part of your manifesto then this is the session for you.
- Where: Our dedicated ‘Ask the UXperts’ Slack channel (You’ll need to request an invitation if you haven’t yet joined our Slack channel)
- When: 4pm Wednesday 2 May PDT or 9am Thursday 3 May AEST (or find out what time that is for you)

How does Ask the UXperts work?
These sessions run for approximately an hour and best of all, they don’t cost a cent. We use a dedicated public Slack channel. That means that there is no audio or video, but a full transcript will be posted up on here in the days following the session.
