Accessibility in the BBC, The open & Inclusive Special Interest Group
Wednesday 15th September 2021 (10:00 – 12:00)
Thank you to those who joined us for openTEL and SeGA’s open & Inclusive Special Interest Group meeting where we were joined by Jamie + Lion and Paul Bepey from the BBC, and Mathias Luccasen from The Open University. The session was hosted by Kate Lister and Paco Iniesto.
Thank you, Kate!
Kicking off the meeting, Eileen Scanlon thanked Kate Lister for all her exceptional work within the Special Interest Group as this was Kate’s last meeting as co-host and SIG lead. Kate has been essential in growing the open & Inclusive SIG and providing interesting themes and excellent speakers. We hope she will stay in touch and attend future meetings when she can and openTEL looks forward to working with Kate in the future!
