This past month, our creative team over at Locus Studios welcomed two new design interns!
Up first is Grace, a recent graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder. She received her bachelor’s degree in communications as well as a minor in technology, art, and media. When Grace is not in the office, she is likely found outside. From rock climbing to running, she is a huge fan of the Colorado outdoors!
Lauren, our other new intern, is a rising senior at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she studies communications and technology, arts, and media. Lauren is an adventurous person who loves exploring Colorado, doing hot yoga, and cooking!
Please join us in welcoming these two talented women to our design team!
Hundreds of accessibility companies and individuals attended the M-Enabling Summit for Accessibility June 12-14 in Washington D.C. to network, explore new assistive technologies, conduct and attend technology showcases and sessions, and to learn what’s going on in the world of accessibility. The International Association of Accessibility hosted the event, and Sarah Green, our Associate Editor, from Circuit Media attended!
The conference included sessions hosted by recognizable companies who are working with accessibility professionals/companies to improve content for people with disabilities such as blindness and deafness. Companies like Google, Amazon, Uber, Level Access, AT&T, The Paciello Group, Microsoft and Disney came together to discuss the ways in which companies large and small can make their products accessible to those with disabilities.
What Does This Mean for Circuit Media?
As a growing media company that is starting to build upon its own accessibility work such as document remediation, web/design audits, this conference offered a great insight into what kind of technology is out there, which companies are performing accessibly work, and who potential partners may be as we look to expand our accessibly/Section 508 capabilities.
What is Section 508?
Section 508 is a federal regulation that requires public and federal employees to make technologies when developed, procured, maintained, or used by federal agencies accessible to those with disabilities. Some of these may include physical, cognitive, or sensory barriers like colorblindness or need for touch screen. Technology is deemed accessible when it can be used as effectively by people with disabilities as those without.
We are proud to be a 508-compliant company and look forward to attending more accessibility conferences and encouraging more companies to create accessible technology as well!
Law Week Colorado recently welcomed a new member to the reporting staff team, Julia Cardi! Julia is a Colorado native who, oddly enough, does not ski or snowboard, but we still like her. She is a recovering chocolate-chip cookie addict with occasional relapses and a full-blown shopaholic. In between perusing the internet for the latest sold-out Adidas sneakers or Tularosa dress, Julia found time to get her bachelor’s in marketing from the University of Colorado Boulder and a master’s in journalism from Northwestern University in 2016. Before joining Law Week Colorado, she worked as a K-12 education and general assignment reporter for the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota. She escaped the state without ending up in a wood chipper and is thrilled to be back in her native Denver with Law Week Colorado.
Please join us in welcoming Julia!
This past month, Law Week Colorado, our law focused newspaper, welcomed the newest member to their team, Becca Voorhees! With interests in law and journalism, we believe she is the perfect fit for the Law Week team. Becca will begin her senior year this fall at the University of Colorado where she is majoring in broadcast journalism with a minor in political science. When she’s not studying for the LSAT or in the office, Becca is spending time with her dog Kipper or going for a run.
Please join us in welcoming her!
