Join Triangle UXPA and the a11yRTP meetup in participating in Global Accessibility Awareness Day! 

We have two great speakers lined up for this evening!  Ryan E. Benson, Lead technical subject matter expert for Section 508 at the Centers for Disease Control and Liani Yirka, Accessibility & Inclusion Coordinator from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences will be talking about their experiences as accessibility experts.

You'll learn about accessibility, how to design more inclusively, and develop empathy through disability simulations and assistive technologies. 

But wait, there's more!

Come early to enjoy pizza and network with other UXers in the community! Talk shop, discuss your current accessibility processes at work, or just relax and spend some quality time catching up with your local UX family.

The event is free to a11yRTP members and Triangle UXPA members. For non-members, it's $5. (Consider becoming a member of a11yRTP or Triangle UXPA today!).
