Embracing Accessibility in the Whole Organization: New Approaches and Resources
What do you mean when you say your organization “embraces accessibility”? Does that mean hiring, retaining and promoting people with disabilities? Ensuring that customers who have disabilities are treated fairly and respectfully? Making sure that the technologies customers and employees use is accessible (not just the internet website, but also the staff intranet, the phone system, and even break-room vending machines)? We usually find that “embracing accessibility” involves enthusiastically tackling one or two areas, but rarely does it span the entire organization. In this presentation, we’ll look at the latest thinking and resources for taking organization-wide approaches to embracing accessibility.
