The pre-show #ID24 2019

>>Hell Hello, everybody. It’s the preconference
countdown. I’m joined by two of my fellow
#id24 team members. Say hi, guys. >>Hello .
>>I’m here as well.>>Patrick Lauke is here in
person. We’re delighted to be joined by
Andrew and Sarah who are both members
of Entopia. It’s a design agency based out
of Australia who have been huge champions of inclusive design and
especially to #id24. Hello to both of you.
>>Hello. >>So we have is a minutes
before we really get under way with the 29 team conference.
There’s so much going on over the next 24 hours. I know the
team is really excited about it. If we take a look forward at
some of the talks coming up, Andrew, Sarah, can you tell us something about why
you’re part of Inclusive Design 24.
>>Absolutely. For us, it’s important to support such a unique opportunity for people
to hear from people around the world around what they’re doing.
As supporters, I think we’re not only supporting this as such an
important and, dare I say, well-run event. It’s always
very, very smooth. We’re encouraging everyone to learn
more about this area and just to — you know, there’s some
amazing topics, particularly on areas we don’t
oven we don’t often talk about. By being able to join this free
event and being able to see the recordings later, people get to
learn more about what it is to design inclusive
products . >>If all these years you’ve
been involved, we could don’t it without your help. It’s a truly
community event, especially for those of us based out of the
United Kingdom to know we’ve gone friends in Australia
watching our back from the other side of the planet, that’s
particularly nice to know. Are there any other talks that
you guys are looking forward to, particularly? >>Just adding to Sarah’s last comment, too, the other aspect
is because we’re so far away from the rest of the world, people in
Australia don’t tend to get the opportunity to hear from many of
the leading people or to attend international conferences
because of the travel requirements, so having
something that’s online like this is really a great opportunity for people
down here to — and, plus, the fact that
it’s all recorded, and they can watch
after after ward can watch afterward. They
get to hear things they wouldn’t hear about. That’s why we’re
encouraging everybody to watch locally now or watch later.
>>And so what are you particularly interested in, Andrew.
>>I’m particularly interested in aging. Yes, gray
hair. I’ve been interested in that area since I got started in
accessibility. I know there’s a few talks
coming up on aging, including Proctor &
Gamble, attracting people that are 50 and beyond. There’s a few talks touching on
that area. I’m particularly interested in what those people
have to say. >>For me, I think it’s a range
of talks. I’m particularly interested in Sarah Lewthwaite’s talk on
how to teach accessibility. So we know there’s a shortage in
accessibility. I think having great research-based method methodologies is going to
be interesting. Elizabeth Schafer, often not
very well understand or considered in design, I think
her topic is going to be important. Lastly, Jo Franchetti’s imposter
syndromeImposter Syndrome. I talk to a lot of people in the
industry, and I think a lot of people tend to have imposterImposter
Syndrome, and I think it’s an important thing to talk about and learn about.
>>Jo’s talk is one of the ones I I’m looking of the one I’m looking
forward to. Also, Peter Shikli’s
jailhouseJailhouse Rock, it’s going to be an
amazing talk because it looks at two completely different aspects
of inclusion. He’s going to be talking about a project that he’s worked on inside a prison. I love the
idea that the people in that position are not only helping
other people around the world, you know, be more included in society, but,
in theory, I’m guessing they’re learning skills and other thingings
things that will give them an opportunity to be included in society when they’re back. That one is on my definite watch
list. Adrian, Pat, what about you
guys? >>I like that this is not just an accessibility
conference. It’s really an inclusive design conference . We have several talk this is
talks this year, and there’s a talk
about imposterImposter Syndrome and anxiety. So we’ve got a wide
range of things that are not just to do with web or
accessibility. >>For what it’s worth, I agree. There’s a talk on typesetting
and affix and UFX. I don’t want to cut Pat off, but
I think we’re short on time. And I think Mike has joined us. Do I
see Mike? >>Live from network. >>We have Mike Paciello in our
opening party. >>Hey, everyone. Good to see you all, Ian,
Léonie, Adrian Adrian — >>And he remembers my name.
>>It’s on the screen. >>Are people not familiar with
the inclusive design story? The idea had been floating around
for a number of years. Mike is the one that said, We
can really make this happen. Let’s do it. Mike is our
founding champion of the whole event. >>And we also have another one.
Paul Smith? >>I think he dropped.
>>I think we might have just lost him, unfortunately. I will
say that Paul comes in from the Barclay’s bank accessibility
team, another long-time supporter of
inclusiveInclusive Design 24. Without his help, we struggled
to get off the ground. They’re based out of the UK and really
involved in the accessibility community in many different
ways, supporting events like this and also doing some
fantastic work around accessibility for their own
banking customers and consumers. Pat, what are you looking
forward to? >>Shamefully, I have to admit
for the last few days I’ve been so closely involved with all the
technical set-up and everything else that I’ve
lost track of what talks we’re having and who we’ve checked and
everything else. So I’m just going to look
forward to having the day go past me and
it’s in a blur .. >>So Andrew and Sarah, tell us
something about what you’re up to at the moment. I know you
guys are involved in many different aspects of the
industry. >>Absolutely. So we sort of really partner
with organizations as their trusted partner to help them
with accessibility. What I’m actually really excited about is
we’re seeing more organizations looking at accessibility at a
strategic level and trying to look at how do they make it
business as usual. So, So from everything from
culture, creating a culture that supports, you know,
accessibility, inclusion down to process, and then capability
building, and I think that’s exciting
because it shows where accessibility and inclusion is
occurring and organizations are taking it up to that level,
you know, to the executive suite
level, the board level. I think that could be a game changer in terms of accessibility becoming
just the norm . >>That sounds fantastic. I agree it’s a really positive
change. >>Paul has joined us again,
if you did not see. >>I did. Thank you. We just
have two minutes, maybe, but, Paul, we did our best to
represent you earlier, but since you’re here,
do you want to say hello. >>Apologies being late. I’ve been listening in and great
stuff Andrew and Sarah said. I think the Barclays, it’s
important in democratizeing all the
accessibility stuff. We’re talking about the theory, the practice,, it’s great there’s
such awesome content from people. We all blend. We’re moving barriers that many
folks face in using digital stuff. We move boundaries for people to
get upskilled and no and be curious about inclusive design.
It’s exciting to see how the next 24 hours go.
>>And on that note, we have to call this one a wrap. Our
first speaker is lining up to take the stage. So we should make sure that
happens on time. So we’ll see you all in two
minutes for the official start of
inclusiveInclusive Design
