Wednesday, March 20 - KPIs for Accessibility

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for accessibility are important because they provide organizations with a quantifiable and measurable way to track their progress in making their digital products accessible. By defining and monitoring accessibility KPIs, organizations can prioritize accessibility efforts, allocate resources effectively, and hold themselves accountable for providing equitable access to all users. Without KPIs, it becomes challenging to gauge the impact of accessibility initiatives and ensure that they are making a meaningful difference. International WCAG standards can help you audit a product that is live, but due to the complexity and costs of audits, the knowledge required to audit, and the fast pace of modern development, they aren’t the most feasible metrics to measure progress on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.

Fable's work with large organizations on inclusive product development has shed light on the metrics that truly matter when it comes to accessibility. Fable has identified KPIs that are both meaningful and adaptable to diverse types of teams. These KPIs go beyond mere compliance with accessibility standards and regulations, focusing on how product teams work. This practical approach empowers organizations to make informed decisions, prioritize what’s working, pivot on what isn’t, and create digital experiences that are truly inclusive for all users.

Thursday, March 21 - What’s New in Google Accessibility

The "What's new in Google Accessibility" session will provide attendees with a comprehensive and informative overview of Google's latest accessibility features and initiatives, covering a wide range of products, features, and research. This session is a valuable opportunity to learn about the latest trends and developments in accessibility and to hear about Google's commitment to making its products and services accessible to everyone.

Friday, March 22 - Making the Case for Inclusive Innovation

Learn how each of the presenters has embedded inclusive innovation and design into their set functions from the start of the product and design lifecycles and how that has positively changed our innovation narrative. This includes embedding digital accessibility into the design practice, inclusive innovation into innovation frameworks and innovation objectives, and communication strategies that are Unexpectedly Human. Executives attending CSUN will have the ability to learn from their executive peers how to influence their leadership tables, how to utilize ESG priorities to make the case for inclusive innovation and design, and how to share through an impactful narrative.
