Speaker. Author. Digital thing fixer.

The Why

Accessible digital design is vital.

When we design for edge-cases, we create a product or presentation that is better for everyone. Stephy always tries to sneak in golden nuggets about designing accessibly in the digital space wherever she goes.

She uses WCAG 2.x standards for AA compliance as the skeleton of what she teaches–but she dresses up those standards in a fun and engaging manner to help others get excited about designing accessibly, as well.

The What

Keynotes, Workshops, Breakouts.

Keynote Speaking

Growth Mindset

Want to help your people feel unstuck? I make them the protagonist in their very own video game and by helping them save the princess in their career quest (themselves). Because they CAN do it. They DO have what it takes. Humans who have a growth mindset have a greater ability to innovate than those who do the same thing their whole lives. They just need a little push to truly believe it.

Workshops

You don’t need to be a designer.

Need a design-related breakout session or workshop?

Johanna RhenvallThe most elegant and accessible presenter so far is Stephy “Snow White” Hogan. Loving to see how the PowerPoint live captions work. I wish I could speak as clearly and nicely paced as Stephy.

I must be selecting all the best presentations–or you all just have selected the best of the best… Stephy was personable and fun and gave great details that will be useful as I seek to create accessible presentations for the first time for my students. Thanks again!
