The accessibility field is rapidly evolving yet there has been no coordinated pursuit of accessibility as a formal profession. Everyone is self-taught and struggling to keep up with new technologies, new regulations and laws, and there’s no consistent global approach. IAAP’s mission is to create a global community to share best practices and facilitate a shared view of accessibility including establishing an accepted base of knowledge accessibility professionals should possess at every level (entry through experienced professionals) and helping to create a career pathway for accessibility professionals. This in turn will ultimately foster the development of higher quality technology, products and services to benefit users with disabilities.

Christine has 30 years of experience in nonprofit management, certification management, education strategy development, corporate education and facilitation and strategic planning.
