It's Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) on Thursday 20 May 2021.

What the FREE webinar will cover

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility and inclusion, and the more than one billion people with disabilities/impairments.

In the webinar AbilityNet's Head of Digital Inclusion, Robin Christopherson MBE, will discuss with Jennison and Joe (pictured above, left, middle and right) their experiences creating the global awareness event, what they've learned along the way, and their plans for the future of inclusion and accessibility.

Jennison Asuncion is Head of Accessibility (A11y) Engineering Evangelism at LinkedIn, and also founded Accessibility and Inclusive Design meet ups in Toronto and San Francisco.

Joe Devon is founding partner at Diamond, an inclusive digital agency. It launched the “Take the #GAADPledge” in 2019 to encourage organisations and developers to make accessibility a core value of their digital products. The GAAD Pledge is open to all organisations as way to show their commitment to accessibility.
