Accessibility 101: Don’t be like Domino’s Pizza

Description

Did you know that 1 billion people around the world—or 15% of the population—has a disability? This means that if your website is not optimized for accessibility, you’re potentially excluding 1 in every 8 visitors from learning more about your organization—or worse yet, from making a donation or taking an action.

Having an accessible site doesn’t just benefit people with disabilities. It benefits all users. Come learn about the importance of alt tagging, color contrast, and how to properly use H1 and H2 headers. Ensuring your site is inclusive may seem overwhelming, but in this session, we’ll break it down with simple steps that you can implement tomorrow.


Learning Outcomes

  • Understand best practices for website accessibility
  • Identify free tools for testing accessibility
  • Learn simple changes you can make to your site tomorrow

Target Audience

Marketing/communications staff who manage their organization's website; non web developers with an interest in optimizing a website for accessibility
