Is your work digitally inclusive? Make sure it is by attending the first Kent Digital Accessibility Conference, at the University’s Canterbury campus, on Thursday 6 June.
The conference marks an exciting new link-up between the University and Kent Connects, an innovative IT partnership of public sector providers including Kent County Council (KCC).
Working alongside Kent Connects will help us create a high accessibility baseline for the county and meet under our obligations under the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations (2018).
The ‘Creating a Digitally Inclusive County’ conference is being jointly hosted by the University’s Student Support and Wellbeing team and Kent Connects to celebrate our shared vision for the county. It’s also your opportunity to get involved in a countywide network of excellence, and share best practice with the experts.
Plenary topics will include:
- The Government Digital Service on new regulations

- Microsoft Accessibility
- Kent authorities on countywide support
- The University of Kent on tools for enhanced digital experience
And practical workshops will be hosted by:
