October 11th 2023 is Document Excellence Day. This year we come together to discuss accessibility, and consider how we make our documents accessible to everyone, regardless of abilities, environment and devices.It seems fitting that this should be a hybrid event – available virtually for our wider community, and in-person for anyone able to be in London.
The activities will start with Registration for the In-Person event at 13:15 and virtually at 13:30 BST / 14:30 CET / 08:30 EDT / 05:30 PDT. The in-Person event will be held at Allen & Overy, One Bishops Square. London, E1 6AD and there will be an opportunity to join us for networking at the same venue.
We have an interesting programme lined up including:
Shalni Sood – Director of Philanthropy and Callum Russell – Trustee at the Royal Society for Blind Children and Founder of Crystal Eyes will talk about the vital importance of considering the vision impaired in the workplace.
Frederik Dessau (Chief Experience Officer) and Morten Hald Mortensen (CTO, Partner) – Omnidocs will give an insight into what accessibility is all about in the document space.
Katie Humphries (Founder) – Accessibility Made Easy will show us how to make our documents more accessible so everyone, no matter their ability, can access them.
Rachel Baiden (Global Technology Training Manager and LTC4 Contributing and Board Member), Gill Garrod (Technology Trainer) – Squire Patton Boggs and Chloe Parfitt (Digital Learning Manager) and Sally Short (Digital Learning Specialist) – Burgess Salmon will discuss how they have developed a robust framework and ensured knowledge is shared across the training team.
During the break there will be some great tips on managing your emails from Heather Morrow (Loeb) and Kelly Taylor (Milbank) to watch for virtual attendees (which will also be made available on the website after the event.
