    Great Lakes ADA Center: "Disability, Diversity, and Inclusion: Lessons Learned from Industry Leaders"

    Where:

    Shriver Center 316C

    Speakers: 

    , Ph.D., Instructor and Project Coordinator, Department of Disability and Human Development at UIC

    Session Description:

    Discussions about the meaningful inclusion of workers with disabilities are often missing from research and practice. Join us as the presenters discuss the findings from a research study that included interviewing industry leaders involved in the diversity and inclusion efforts of more than 40 businesses across the Great Lakes Region (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin).  The research team worked with the businesses to better understand the process of creating an inclusive workplace culture in relation to informal and formal policies, programs, initiatives, and practices that support the recruitment, hiring, and retention of workers with disabilities. The presenters provide a summary of some of the emerging best practices and challenges to implementing them. There will be time for participants to ask the presenters about their work.

    Level Access: "Beyond the Web: How to Ensure Your Mobile Content is Accessible"

    Where:

    Shriver Center 316C

    Speakers: 

    Jonathan Avila – Chief Accessibility Officer

    Session Description:

    Mobile usage is growing at a rapid pace as the ways we use our devices continually evolve. Using smartphones to perform basic activities of daily living like banking, shopping, or scheduling appointments is no longer just a convenience—it’s become the norm. And the ability to use these features is often even more valuable to people with disabilities, removing real-world barriers to the products & services they need.

    Ensuring you500彩票手机软件下载r mobile apps and mobile web content is accessible isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s a legal requirement. Digital accessibility lawsuits continue to rise, and settlement agreements are increasing including both web and mobile accessibility requirements.

    Friday, March 20, 2020, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
    Level Access: "Growing Accessibility and Inclusion Through Design Systems"

    Where:

    Shriver Center 316C

    Speakers: 

    Derek Featherstone, Chief Experience Officer

    Elle Waters, Vice President, Community & Global Development

    Special Guest: Dan Mall, Founder, SuperFriendly

    Session Description:

    Design Systems help us extract more value from a project, pulling out well-designed components as candidates for reuse on future products vs. reinventing the wheel every time. Those proven and tested components can then propagate across product teams for increased consistency and efficiency, ultimately driving better products to market faster.

    They can also help you500彩票手机软件下载 streamline accessibility—integrating accessible components in a standardized framework to consistently create inclusive user experiences.

    Get it right, and you500彩票手机软件下载 propagate inclusion—building software and technology that works better for everyone, including people with disabilities.

    And when you500彩票手机软件下载 get it wrong? You propagate exclusion. It’s that simple.

    Derek Featherstone, Elle Waters, and special guest Dan Mall come together to share their combined experience in the trenches working with clients to “get it right” through development, training, and roll-out of user-experience-driven design systems. They share valuable lessons learned along the way–and innovative ideas for moving forward–to ensure that the right systems are in place to build technology that’s accessible to everyone.

    The AccessMU Center is partnering with the Miller Center for Student Disability 500彩票手机软件下载 to offer Assistive Technology (AT) Open Labs for all students. This is an opportunity to learn more about AT provided by Miami, including Livescribe Echo Pens, Read&Write by Text Help, Bookshare, etc.
    All Assistive Technology Open Labs will be held in Shriver Center 316D.
