If you're testing with users of assistive technology (AT) and people with disabilities, this gives you real-life experiences that lead to design improvements. But how do you quantify these results? This presentation will explore why a new measurement tool was needed to effectively capture assistive technology user experiences.

This session will share the highlights and ‘warts’ of our journey to shifting our organizational culture. We will highlight the Liberatory Design Framework and Mindsets, as well as some of the other techniques we use to embody our values and put them into action. Our values are not only forward facing—meaning the code of conduct for clients; but these same values also hold us accountable internally, as an organization that not just uses the words but embodies the practice—making continual space to notice and reflect upon how power, identity and oppression show up in varying contexts of our organization and work. Join us as we discuss the steps we’ve taken to hold ourselves and each other accountable with grace.
