Accessibility and Inclusion (A&I) Lab: Empowering Innovation for Universal Accessibility

When:  Jun 23, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (AEDT)

Welcome to the Accessibility and Inclusion (A&I) Lab, a dynamic and inclusive space dedicated to fostering creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration for addressing accessibility challenges.

This weekly one-hour session brings together both internal and external teams, providing a platform to learn, seek advice, conduct testing, and engage in thought-provoking discussions to drive innovation and promote accessibility for all.

During each session, participants will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics related to accessibility, inclusion, and universal design. Our facilitators will guide discussions and encourage brainstorming sessions where individuals can freely share ideas, insights, and experiences. 

In the A&I Lab, we prioritise both simple and complex accessibility issues, recognising that even small improvements can have a significant impact on people's lives. Our goal is to empower teams to develop creative solutions that address barriers faced by individuals with disabilities and promote an inclusive society.

Participants can leverage the A&I Lab's ambassadors and resources, including assistive technologies testing tools and case studies, to gain practical insights and conduct hands-on test and review.
