This past year has seen huge progress in social change, however, one segment is often left out of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiatives: people with disabilities. Over a billion people have a disability. When it comes to creating a diverse culture, businesses often neglect this segment as a part of their D&I initiative. Adding people with disabilities to your workforce not only makes your business more accessible, but drives better decision making and innovation. How can businesses expand their D&I initiatives to include people with disabilities? How do you make products accessible for all? Join accessibility leaders to discuss best practices on how to build quality digital experiences for everyone, and how to include people with disabilities into your enterprise.
