What are Global Accessibility Awareness Days at LWTech?

GAAD logo: Global Accessibility Awareness Days Presented by LWTech Digital Accessiblity CommitteeThis 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!

What is Digital Accessibility?

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.
