Upcoming Webinars

  • 21st July 2022 – Make your draft digital accessibility plan in one hour – a guided demonstration of the Digital Accessibility Maturity Scorecard. To deliver accessibility effectively and efficiently where you work, you need a plan. But many organisations focus their efforts on the wrong things without a clear strategy. The ISO 30071-1 Digital Accessibility Maturity Scorecard provides a quick way of checking how good your current strategy is, and suggests next best steps in 9 areas of maturity for your plan. In this session, the author of the Standard, Jonathan Hassell, and the creator of the Scorecard, Peter Bricknell, will walk you through the Scorecard, showing you how to complete it to find your current level of accessibility, and create a draft or updated accessibility plan using its results and next step recommendations. Attend and complete the Scorecard live in the session on your own. Or sign up a colleague to do it with you – bringing together more than one perspective can give a more holistic response. Whether you’re new to accessibility or have an established plan you wish to check or refresh, this hour will help take your plan to the next level
  • 25th August 2022 – “Ask me anything”: Q&A with Jonathan Hassell. Hassel Inclusion’s CEO Jonathan Hassell has 22 years experience of all aspects of accessibility at technical and strategic levels. So once a year the company opens the floor and gives you the opportunity to ask him any questions you have about accessibility. Whatever your role – project manager, designer, user researcher, D&I lead, Head of Digital, Head of Accessibility – come to their August webinar to ask your questions! Just put your question in the box when you register and they’ll do their best to answer it live in the session. Of course, if you’d just like to come and listen, you’re very welcome.
  • 22nd September 2022 – Accessibility: How do you prioritise when everything is urgent? It’s true that you can’t do everything, for everyone, all of the time. So prioritising accessibility demands can be a real challenge for all organisations no matter where they are in their accessibility journey. Your challenge could be that you’re faced with a 100-page accessibility audit and don’t know where to start. What do I fix first? What’s urgent and important? What’s the risk, the effort needed to do each fix? How do we prioritise? Or maybe you need to work out how to prioritise accessibility spend in your testing budget. What’s the best value accessibility training you could get, and when should you plan it in to give you most benefit? Or perhaps you’re looking at things at a more strategic level, and working out which group of people in your team should get training first, and who can wait till later. This webinar will help you navigate this prioritisation whatever your business needs and resources.

How Hassel Inclusion’s webinars help you

Whatever your role in delivering digital accessibility, these webinars are designed to help you develop your accessibility knowledge and maturity in your organisation.

Accessibility is a critical part of the digital product development process, and we all need to make sure that, in the rush to get products delivered, we don’t short-change those with accessibility issues.

In talking to the company’s network and clients at Hassell Inclusion, it’s clear they’re facing many challenges with this, at a time when digital is more important than ever before.

The company’s Digital Accessibility Experts Live webinars allow digital leaders and their teams to ask their accessibility questions and get answers from the Hassell Inclusion accessibility experts.

Each month their webinar takes an important accessibility topic and shares practical advice and tips, from the perspectives of developers, designers, content authors, testers and the digital and product managers who lead them.

Come and be part of the company’s accessibility community, and get expert advice from their experienced team who can help you get the benefits out of inclusive design.
