Ensuring that digital environments are accessible and inclusive for all people is critical for fairness, justice and productivity in our societies. This session will explore digital accessibility from the perspectives of those with disabilities who use such services and those who need to design them.
Andrew Arch and Sarah Pulis from Intopia have collectively worked in the digital accessibility and inclusion for over thirty years. They embrace the importance of usable accessibility in delivering a more accessible outcome for people with disability. As strong advocates for inclusive design, they are always looking for ways to build awareness of accessibility as part of good user experience design, and work on strategies for how to encourage more organisations to speak with people with lived experience.
Simon Darcy is a Professor at the UTS Business School, University of Technology Sydney.

Simon has a long history of involvement in advocacy and volunteer boards. He was a member of the Disability Council of NSW [masked]), which is the ministerial advisory to the New South Wales Government's Department of Family and Community Services.
