axe-con 2021

This month the Accessibility Ambassadors will be taking a break from regular sessions to plan and prepare for our events this year. Rather than a Lunch ‘n Learn as usual, below is information about a free event you may be interested in called axe-con.

Axe-con, to be held March 10-11, is a free virtual conference based around accessibility. There are many sessions to choose from, but we at the Ambassadors are particularly interested in learning what they have to share about Accessible Data Visualizations 101. Please take a look and join us at this (or any other) axe-con session!
