Trying to turn an ocean liner at an airline

British Airways has had an accessibility provision for many years but on a cold winters day in 2018 the responsibility for making some significant change fell to me. At Collaborate this year I’ll talk you through how we shifted understanding of Accessibility in our digital teams, brought our leaders on board and began our journey to delivering a more inclusive for our customers.

You will no doubt hear some familiar challenges faced by anyone picking up the accessibility mantle within a business and will gain an understanding of how to start turning the ocean liner around, so your business will be facing in the right direction to meet your accessibility goals. It’s a long and lonely game but don’t lose heart, the rewards for you and your customers are great and you’re never alone!
