“Integrating Accessibility: Planning Content for Everyone”

Discussions about web accessibility are usually focused on the technical challenges, but the real roadblocks are often inside your organization. Editors don’t know the steps to creating accessible content, and managers don’t understand the need. You may have a technically-accessible site, but you don’t have the workflow to fill it. We’ll talk about the organizational changes necessary to support complete content accessibility, from executive persuasion techniques to nitty-gritty process planning. Some organizations can be motivated by a carrot, while others will need the stick.

“Planning for Consistency: Creating Content Practices to Support Your Team”

The copy has been written and the message has been set. The site is live, and everything fits. But after a few months, things start to slip. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to improve the authoring experience for those who are creating and maintaining content. We’ll learn how to build content guidelines (that your team will actually use!) to support the ongoing content creation needs of your site.
