Let’s talk about the world beyond the pandemic.

Our Mission

As we begin to return to normal, the world as we knew it will never be the same. We’ve become digitally-dependent and now need to figure out how to transition to in-person, while continuing to value digital.

Our future is looking very hybrid.

At ACCESS, we’ll explore:

  • Accessibility lessons from the pandemic
  • How organizations can ensure their hybrid workplaces are accessible
  • How will companies who don’t address web accessibility struggle to transition back
  • Legal landscape of accessibility in 2021

Expert-Led Sessions: Leaders at the top of their fields share lessons and actionable advice.

ACCESS Community: Join the ACCESS Slack to connect with other professionals around the world.

Fun Surprises: We’ll have daily prizes, quizzes, and conference-exclusive content.
