    Why aren’t our sites and products more accessible? According to Whitney Quesenbery, it’s because user research rarely includes people with disabilities. Not because we don’t care about their experience, but because we don’t understand it.

    Designing with true accessibility in mind has its challenges. But it is also an opportunity to see the world differently. Meeting and overcoming barriers to accessibility creates a better experience for all of your users.

    Whether your interest in accessibility is driven by compassion or compliance, Whitney will demonstrate how designing for users from the outer edges of the bell curve results in amazing ideas and insights. 

    Attend this seminar if you want to:

    • Improve your site’s accessibility, but don’t know where to start
    • Learn recruiting strategies and practical tips for running a research session
    • Leverage accessibility challenges into amazing design work

    Making a web for everyone means applying all of our design research tools to include people with a broader range of capabilities. Whitney Quesenbery pushes designers to challenge the old belief that accessibility equals bad design. It’s time to reframe the problem and see accessibility as an opportunity to push our designs from good enough to great. If you want to get started, don’t miss this seminar!


    The webinar will start at 6:30 PM, preceded by a half hour for socializing, networking, and food. 

    We are able to offer this webinar at no cost. Come at 6:00 to meet your fellow Triangle UXPAers and talk shop!

    * You must be present at the host location to view this webinar.
