This year marks the 13th anniversary of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), and LWTech's fourth year participating! The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking, and learning about digital access and inclusion, and the more than One Billion people with disabilities/impairments. Here at LWTech, we took it one step further by commemorating GAAD as a week-long event!
Every user deserves a first-rate digital experience whether it is on the web or their electronic device. Someone with a disability must be able to experience web-based services, content and other digital products with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities. This awareness and commitment to inclusion is the goal of GAAD, a global event that shines a light on digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities.
LWTech offers a week-long celebration filled with micro-workshops, videos, challenges, games, and other activities related to learning about digital accessibility. All events are open to the LWTech Community.
More information and final schedules will be available via email, so keep an eye on your inbox in April and May!
Mon-Fri, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) is committed to providing access to information for all, therefore we are taking the following measures to ensure accessibility of the college’s public facing website (LWTech.edu), and third-party platforms utilized by students, staff, and community members.
