Accessibility Scotland is supported by Barclays
Barclays is a transatlantic consumer, corporate and investment bank anchored in our two home markets of the UK and the US.
Our ambition is to become the most accessible and inclusive FTSE company and ensure that everyone can bank with or be employed by us regardless of their situation or circumstance.
As part of our ambition, we have a strategy to build accessibility awareness and technical expertise across our workforce and beyond to ensure that our workforce of today and tomorrow have the skills to enable them to build a fully accessible and inclusive experience for all.
As part of this strategy, Barclays works in partnership with groups focused on building and upskilling communities of product professionals such as a designers, developers, testers and researchers who can deliver brilliantly accessible and inclusive experiences.
We’re really proud to be working with Accessibility Scotland in our first relationship with a community in Scotland. Barclays are committed to building excellence in accessibility across the world and with Scotland being an important and strategic centre for the bank going forward, it makes sense for us to work with Accessibility Scotland on this conference. We believe that accessibility challenges of the future won’t be solved purely by having more accessibility specialists but by those building products and services. Accessibility Scotland provides the community of product professionals in Scotland a place to come together, learn, share and grow and advance the accessibility agenda in Scotland and beyond.
