22NTC Session: Digital Inclusion
The Intersection of Social Impact, Inclusion, and Digital Accessibility
Submitted by: Jen Frazier | Firefly Partners

Description

Do you know that over 26% of adults in the US live with a disability? That is 61 million Americans. How does that impact our work? If we want to effect real, widespread change, we need to make sure we are including everyone who wants to show up and join in the fight. Because as we know, we cannot afford to create barriers to participation – even if unintentional. Ensuring that your work is fully accessible and inclusive across your digital channels is imperative. Right from the first interaction with your organization, every person should be able to learn, interact, sign up, and get involved with ease. Come to this session to learn more about the fundamentals of digital accessibility and why and how your organization can do what it takes to ensure we bring everyone along in the movement.
