Thanks for your interest in joining our kick-off webinar for the W3C Nordic Accessibility Community Group.

Our agenda includes presentations from two accessibility experts who will share their exclusive industry perspectives.

AGENDA

09.00 Introduction to the Nordic WC3 chapter and the four community groups by Daniel Dersén, Swedish Internet Foundation. The Swedish Internet Foundation believes that the web is the key to improving quality of life and meeting many of the challenges in the world such as poverty and climate crisis. Open source is good but standards have the force to unify both the public and the private sector to drive technology forward. That is why we have engaged in the work of W3C.

09:10 Introduction to the Nordic Accessibility Community Group vision by Kristian Kristoffersen, Product Line Director, Inclusivity and Content Experience

09:15 Why accessibility is important for business, and how Microsoft focuses on accessibility by Niina Majaniemi, Customer Success Account Manager, Microsoft

09:50 Why accessibility is embedded in Amazon’s customer experience company core value by Shadi Abou-Zahra, Amazon, Devices Accessibility, Principal Standards, and Policy Manager

10:25 Wrapping up and how to join the community by Kristian Kristoffersen

We look forward to seeing you online on May 18.
