Media Access Australia’s Digital Media and Technology Manager Sarah Pulis will be talking to not-for-profit organisations about web accessibility at this year’s Connecting Up conference.

Connecting Up 2011 is a conference for organisations in the not-for-profit, charity and community sectors to discuss how new technologies can improve organisational efficiency and outcomes.

Pulis said, “For a lot of not-for-profits whose audience includes people with disabilities, sometimes more so than other sectors, providing a website that is accessible to all people is extremely important.”

Pulis will be presenting on the progress of web accessibility in different parts of the world, and talking about practical ways for influencing and enacting change within organisations.

Earlier this year, Pulis won a Connecting Up Australia scholarship to attend the world’s largest non-profit technology conference in Washington DC for her commitment to access to technology and online media.

The Connecting Up conference will be held in Melbourne from 1 - 3 June.
