- Michel Dvorak
Web integrator, webmaster, copywriter and photographer since 2008, Michel discovered web accessibility at the University of Montreal while doing a student exchange in 2011. After his master thesis, "Web accessibility of Belgian governemental websites" (2013, ULB), he then decided to travel and work some 3-6 months projects as webmaster.
After several projects (Partenamut, AG Insurance, European Parliament, etc.), Michel did follow a UX training program (2021, ULB) and then decided to dedicate his career to web accessibility.
First volunteering and then freelancing for AnySurfer during 9 months, making WCAG conformity audits, mainly for public institution websites, Michel now advocates for an accessible digitalisation in Belgium: giving and participating to conferences, giving classes (Paris) and trainings for professionals in charge of creating digital websites and tools.
