Accessibility Ambassadors: Data Visualization

September 9, 2021

To give employees some breathing room during back-to-school, the Ambassadors are skipping September and will have an early October session instead.

How to present data in an inclusive and accessible manner has been a session request for a while. Unfortunately, it has proven difficult to find speakers with experience in this area. Thankfully, this month we are joined by Neha Bansal, senior director of application development in the Office of Information Technology, to discuss accessibility in data visualization.

This session will focus on strategies for building accessible data visualizations for users with visual impairments. We will delve into common misconceptions, visual best practices, and resources for creating accessible content. Please join us!

Accessibility Ambassadors: Data Visualization
Thursday, October 7, noon-1 p.m. We will leave additional time for questions if needed.

Registration for this session is required. Let us know if you are attending. This session will be recorded, captioned, and shared with the Google Group. Any accommodation requests for the live event should be made before September 23, 2021.
