Professional Development Meeting - Take Advantage of the Accessibility Opportunity for Your Organization with Kathy Marks
Attendees will be able to discuss:
- What is accessibility
- Who accessibility affects
- How accessible your organizations digital content and communication is
- How to promote accessibility to management, content creators, and your development team
Overview of Presentation:
How accessible is your organization's digital content? Do you use the web to communicate with customers? To attract new business?
Without realizing it, your company may be missing a huge opportunity to reach a significant portion of the population. We'll talk about what accessibility is, give you some simple tests you can do yourself, and discuss ideas for promoting accessibility throughout your organization.
