This International Day of Persons with Disabilities is the second to occur during the Covid-19 crisis. To honor this important day, Disability:IN’s Dorothy Garcia will open this webinar by sharing initial findings from the pilot round of the Global Disability Equality Index, and how the pandemic has made disability inclusion top of mind for businesses navigating a rapidly changing landscape. With over 30 companies and 25 countries participating, there’s a lot to be learned about how businesses have adapted their policies and practices to address employee needs and attract potential hires.
The conversation will then turn to Disability:IN Corporate Partner, Current Global, who will address the topic of accessible communications. Every day, content is published that is inaccessible to many, and marketing campaigns are launched that aren’t designed to be inclusive of people with sight, hearing, speech and cognitive disabilities. Learn why and how Accessible by Design – an initiative that Fast Company named a 2021 World Changing Idea – is challenging organizations to commit to making content that’s accessible to all.
Moderator: Dorothy Garcia, Senior Manager of the Global Disability Equality Index (GDEI).
Speakers: Rebecca Roussell, Senior Vice President, DEI Communications at Current Global and Sena Pottackal, Junior Associate, DEI and Corporate at Current Global.
