W4A 2017

Sunday 2 April to Tuesday 4 April

W4A is the international Web For All accessibility conference. Access to the web should be easy for all people on whatever device they wish to use.

The focus of W4A2017 will be ‘The Future of Accessible Work’

With expanding globalisation, work is becoming less of a local activity, with many now working on teams spread over great distances. Inclusive work environments have the potential to greatly improve the ability of people to obtain and maintain meaningful employment, despite disabilities or other impairments. Organisations and employers are also embracing the benefits of being more inclusive in their human resource management. More flexible working arrangements — such as telecommuting for remote employees, better access to remote work technologies, access to better data platforms, and employees using their own devices (BYOD) — are just a few of the possibilities that employers are exploring.
