Tomorrow's Tech and the Future for Banking

AbilityNet's TechShare pro conference was supported by BarclaysPaul Smyth, Head of IT Accessibility at Barclays, gave  a great overview of how the bank uses a three pronged approach to embed inclusive design in all its work:

  • Inspiring hearts
  • Educating heads
  • Enabling hands.

As well as working in-house to support colleagues in every team Barclays has also shared a range of high quality accessibility reference materials which are well worth downloading. These include a poster demonstrating a practical approach to inclusive design as well as a set of Diverse Personas which underpin their user-centred approach to design (download links below).

Paul also played this video about accessibility that was produced by Barclays to mark International Day of Disabled Persons 2016.
