Elle Waters

Senior Accessibility Strategist
Simply Accessible

Evangelizing the growth of Universal Design as a best practice within large organizations, Elle works on behalf of Simply Accessible with enterprise level clients to build the foundation needed to integrate accessibility into every facet of corporate culture. She's worked first hand with design, content, development, and testing teams to create lean and scalable methods in creating more accessible experiences. She's seen amazing things happen, where the user's needs are the primary driver for change and innovation in large scale web projects, where teams succeed in meeting and exceeding their specific goals, and where companies leap ahead of their competition, all by putting accessibility first. Elle currently serves as a member of the newly formed W3C Cognitive Disability Task Force, and she regularly finds reasons to visit Austin, Texas when she can. She has a passion for social justice, a fascination with emerging technology, and a healthy fear of zombies.
