Clearly, in today’s workplace, technology is one of the central drivers—if not the central driver—of individual and organizational productivity, regardless of company size or industry. But, if a company’s technology infrastructure is not accessible, employees with disabilities may not be able to work to their fullest. What’s more, qualified applicants may not even be able to get their figurative foot in the door. This webinar will address NILG members’ responsibilities and opportunities related to the accessibility of websites, online systems, mobile applications, and other forms of workplace information and communication technology (ICT). Presenters will explore the “why” and “how” of ensuring the ICT companies buy and use is accessible to all applicants and employees, and the critical role it can play in achieving disability inclusion goals. As part of the discussion, a company will share its experiences expanding its “accessibility mindset” to encompass the virtual as well as physical environment.
