Incorporating disability inclusion and accessibility practices as a part of DEI initiatives can help drive brand value and shape a broader culture of belonging. This panel will explore how the entertainment industry is starting to evolve and become more inclusive of accessibility practices across business units. We will dive into what that actually means, share best practices and give recommendations on best ways to incorporate this type of thinking into business deals, casting & hiring opportunities as well as marketing and communications messaging.
