How can we consider ourselves creative people if what we create isn’t accessible to everyone? Disability and accessibility are topics that are invisible to most of us: if you aren’t disabled yourself, or don’t have a close relationship with a disabled person, you likely don’t realize how both the physical and digital worlds create barriers for the one in five Canadians who are disabled.
Join Ashleigh in December for a Creative Mornings Winnipeg presentation on how disability and accessibility are invisible to most of us — and what you can do to change that.

She manages a team of over 20 developers, UX designers and QA analysts who work to maintain and grow two eLearning products. A graduate of the Computer/Analyst Programmer (CAP) program at Red River College, she has held various development and management roles in the tech industry for over 12 years. Ashleigh is a vocal advocate for accessibility and inclusive design, working to make Neovation’s products more accessible to users of all types and abilities. She has spoken about accessibility to a variety of audiences, including at Prairie Dev Con in Winnipeg & Regina, Confoo Montreal, and at TedxWinnipeg 2019, where she brought the idea and foundations of digital accessibility to an audience of nearly 700 Winnipeggers. Ashleigh has also published articles on digital accessibility in Code Magazine in 2019 and 2020.
