There are signs that accessibility as a discipline and profession is maturing.
Over the last few years CSUN sessions on ‘how to achieve WCAG compliance’ by isolated experts from across the world have gradually been accompanied by more and more sessions on how the world’s major corporations are asking increasingly larger and more successful accessibility service providers to make accessibility part of how they work.
Models such as the Accessibility Maturity Model from the UK Employers Forum on Disability and EU4ALL’s Four Stage Model of Professionalism in Accessibility (see references) have laid out roadmaps for the levels or stages organisations tend to go through as they become more mature in their consideration of accessibility.
Professor Jonathan Hassell will describe both of these models, and discuss whether they could be used to measure the maturing of the whole accessibility profession that shows signs of happening around us.
