Helping Organizations Grow Accessibility Maturity

Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 11:20 AM PDT  
Platinum 5 (VISPERO)  

Accessibility consultancy often starts with a request for audit and remediation support, an indicator that an organization is at an early stage of managing accessibility strategically. Quality audits identify non-conformance issues with standards and provide guidance on remediating barriers for disabled people. Transitioning from a cycle of audit and remediation is important for organizations to reduce accessibility risk, implement accessibility more effectively and improve product quality.

TPGi's partnerships with clients to build accessibility capacity require creative, tailored ways to identify opportunities for clients to make lasting, successful changes, recognize challenges and take advantage of opportunities to build accessibility into transformative activities. Based on our experiences working with clients in diverse sectors, this talk looks at different approaches we've taken to assess clients' current state and readiness to engage in activities intended to grow accessibility maturity and to provide clients with support tailored to their specific situations.

Using the emerging W3C Accessibility Maturity Model as a guide, we review different dimensions and levels of maturity and identify activities that can be adopted by organizations at specific maturity profiles to help them grow accessibility capacity – in design and development processes, knowledge and skills development, hiring, procurement and communicating progress.
