We may be used to reading and hearing "we're ADA compliant" as the response to inquiries about accessibility and disability inclusion. Compliance is the bare minimum and is actually the starting block, not the final goal. Compliance doesn't mean you've optimized the human experience for an equitable experience. Let's review some things that you may have learned during May, and more specifically around Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) 2022.

  • Understanding how to assess physical accessibility
  • Understanding how to review vendors' statements on digital accessibility
  • Key elements for accessible events (live or online)
