WordPress Accessibility Meetup: Six Levels of A11Y Maturity: Know Where You Are to Know Where You Are Going with Nick Croft on Thursday, June 6 at 10 AM Central.

Accessibility is such a large topic that teams can be overwhelmed by the possibilities. They don’t know where to focus efforts and often try hard to make accessible spaces, but don’t have a solid plan that will lead to accomplishing their goals. This talk will break down the journey into six stages, with clear descriptions of each stage and practical steps to move from one stage to the next. Find out where you are and chart where you will go.

These meetups take place via Zoom and are live captioned. You must register to attend via Zoom.
