I’m Lotte Johansen. I am an Accessibility Advocate and Engineering Manager with Developer background. I love to speak about Accessibility and Technology.
During my career I have developed an interest for web accessibility. It started in 2014 when a new legislation for accessibility was introduced in Norway. We were several developers and designers who decided to create an accessibility group and figure out what to do about it at our workplace, FINN.no. When I realized that by making websites accessible to people with disabilities, we make them better for EVERYONE, the purpose of being an accessibility advocate became even clearer to me.
In 2015 I started speaking at conferences like JavaZone and WebRebels about accessibility, and I have also extended the number of subjects I talk about at conferences. In 2019 I was nominated “Tech Role Model” by Tech Women Norway.
