Kate has championed accessibility since the launch of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act in 2001. In the last decade, she redesigned Ontario.ca, led the Ontario Government’s first user experience team, developed the Inclusive Design Toolkit, created Ontario’s design guide with an emphasis on accessible web components, and built a role-based digital accessibility training and resource guide.
Currently she is leading Canada Post in making their websites and applications accessible while building capacity within the digital team to embed accessibility into their daily work. In her spare time, Kate likes to go to CrossFit classes, read about biology (especially immunology, longevity and nutrition science), and spoil her two cats. She is hearing impaired.
