About this Event

With the introduction of Europe-wide legislation, digital accessibility. Diversity, digital inclusion and online accessibility are among the hottest trends in 2020. Large corporations such as Microsoft, Accenture and Uber are currently focusing on the value of tapping into this unused market potential. And you should be doing that as well.

15% of the World's population (ONE billion people) experiences some form of disability such as blindness, vision impairment , color blindness, dyslexia, deafness, hearing impairments and more.

Not only does this group of people need online access to products and services that are inclusive and serves their digital needs. Their peers, such as friends, families and colleagues share a need for digital products that are inclusive and accessible to use as well. Regardless of impairments, people need to be included in the design of a more digitized world, locally as well as globally, it's that simple.

Accessibility and universal design is not only related to disabilities. Large groups within our society lack digital skills needed to navigate in an increased digital everyday life. Moreover, various groups of people do not speak multiple languages and is limited in their skills of mastering a specific language well. Not having this on your radar when designing your company's online presence, content and digital products and services means that you are consciously or unconsciously excluding people.

Let's be honest. A lack of accessibility leaves room for improvement. Not only is it smart business, it is also the right thing to do from a corporate responsible perspective.

Regardless of whether you are a public sector body, a private company or a development agency you need to ask yourself;

• How far is your organisation from taking advantage of the potential market share?

• Are your organisation's products, services and communication flows designed in such a way that they are accessible and usable to all?

• Do you consider digital inclusion as a means of growing your customer reach when designing or developing online solutions?

• Are your current processes based on inclusive design principles?

• And are you on top of the increased legislation that is currently taking effect across Europe?

Digital inclusion and accessibility require a dedicated focus for the modern business to succeed in adopting an inclusive mindset and applying inclusive design principles throughout the entire business across various sectors, departments, and functions.
