Young Digital Leader Nomination

I was shocked but incredibly proud to learn I had been nominated for Young Digital Leader 2017, even more surprised to be shortlisted amongst such amazing talent.

Having been excluded growing up I am passionate about inclusion advocating for those with specific accessibility needs, for our ageing population, for those with temporary disabilities, also consulting and raising awareness of need with corporates all over the world.

Accessibility is for us all, design and develop your website, app, property or environment with the minority in mind then you will find you have become accessible to all, never close a window.

There is so much work to do in the fields of accessibility, inclusivity and usability, this really is just the beginning.  

An exciting time to be involved in evolving assistive technology much of it enhancing for most and truly life changing for others.

It is a time when it is possible to use mainstream technology to access a multitude of things and services that were once inaccessible for many.

I am very excited to be joining the team at DL100 and all nominated for this award on Thursday 22 June - best of luck to all.
