Accessible360's GAAD Equitable Digital Access and Inclusion Webinar
Accessible360 Celebrates Global Accessibility Awareness Day with Equitable Digital Access and Inclusion Webinar
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA - May 18, 2020. Accessible360, a digital accessibility auditing firm, is excited to celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day on May 21, 2020, in a joint virtual event partnership with partner agency, O8
. The virtual event will occur on Tuesday, May 19, to discuss inclusive practices of digital accessibility. Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is a worldwide event aimed at getting people to start thinking and learning about digital accessibility (web, software, IoT, mobile apps, etc.) and how to offer equitable access for the more than one billion people across the globe that have a disability. GAAD’s founders created the initiative to engage design, development, usability, and related communities.
This webinar will be hosted by Accessible360’s Co-Founder/CRO, Michele Landis. Landis has been teaching Continuing Legal Education classes in the United States for years and now does them internationally as well. The webinar will help organizations understand how to properly go about a digital accessibility project and the legal risks of not taking proactive action.
“During these uncertain times, the quick shift to an all online era with all of us dependent on digital platforms has exposed many companies’ lack of accessibility and other universal design-related user experience best practices. But especially for those with disabilities, the gaps and inequity are startling,” reports Landis. “With 61 million Americans, (1 billion people worldwide) having a disability, digital accessibility is one of the most important business compliance topics out there.” Accessible360 works directly with companies or organizations and often with their digital agencies, like O8, to execute an audit and help teams fix the code to bring the product into compliance, thus enabling accessibility for everyone.
