Thank You For Participating in A360's GAAD Assessments!
All of us at A360 would like to give a huge thank you to the non-profit organizations that participated in our free assessments for Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 17th.
Some organizations included:
- Kinetic Light: Kinetic Light is a disability art collective that creates, performs, and teaches at the intersections of disability, dance, and race. Currently touring the production DESCENT starring disabled artists Alice Sheppard, Laurel Lawson and Michal Maag.
- American Society of Anesthesiologists: ASA is an educational, research and scientific association of physicians organized to raise and maintain the standards of the medical practice of anesthesiology and improve the care of the patient.
- Pathpoint: PathPoint is a 501©(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities or disadvantages to reach their fullest potential.
- Upstream Arts: Upstream Arts uses the power of the creative arts to activate and amplify the voice and choice of individuals with disabilities. Their vision is to change mindsets about ability and disability and promote more connected and engaged communities by increasing intentional opportunities for shared creative experiences.
These 30-minute assessments involved a team of A360 auditors talking with clients via Zoom (an accessible conferencing tool) while reviewing their websites. The free assessments were designed to further our mission of increasing awareness/understanding of digital accessibility, and helping to make the web accessible for all. As more and more people gain awareness of the importance of digital accessibility, lawmakers hopefully will recognize the severity of this issue. These assessments are an important step in this process.
Again, thanks to Kinetic Light, American Society of Anesthesiologists, and Pathpoint, for participating and showing your committment to digital accessibility!
