Accessibility Summit

11-12 May 2022

At Diversity Network's Accessibility Summit 2022, discover new tools and resources to help you create a truly inclusive environment for your workforce, equipping your people with everything they need to thrive.

Inclusive design and accessibility affect everyone. This has been brought into sharp focus during the pandemic, which has shown how ‘normal’ does not work in so many situations – particularly for those with visible, hidden, temporary, or situational disabilities.

There has been a much-needed increased focus on accessibility over the last year. Organisations had to provide new equipment, tools and adjustments for home-based employees, and some discovered there was an untapped pool of talent who may not be able to make it into offices but are able to perform a role to a high standard remotely, potentially helping to address skills gaps in certain sectors.

It is important that accessibility does not fall down the agenda, and that inclusive design for the benefit of all employees and customers continues to be a priority as businesses begin getting ‘back to normal’.

At this exclusive Accessibility Summit, join us for expert advice on embedding accessibility as part of your diversity and inclusion strategy and day-to-day activity, the inclusive design tools and technologies readily available to help you achieve greater accessibility, how disability-focused Employee Resource Groups can help shape workplace inclusion for all, how to effectively support and hire neurodivergent employees, and the best ways to measure results.

This in-depth online event features a mix of insightful presentations, interviews and case studies, a live panel discussion and an interactive meetup session. Discover lots of practical ideas and resources to help you create a truly accessible, inclusive workplace.

  • Discover new software tools and strategies to benefit diversity and inclusion in your organisation
  • Ignite passion for diversity and inclusion initiatives within your organisation and facilitate greater change for good
  • Connect with other professionals also looking to upgrade their D&I strategies and work together to advance change
