People, projects, and training that deliver truly inclusive experiences.
The inclusion imperative.
With digital experiences now central to how companies interact with their customers and with 1 in 4 people in the U.S. having a disability, accessibility has become a central requirement for every digital touchpoint.
Digital accessibility isn’t just the right thing to do. It can drive increased revenue by making digital transactions easier. And it can reduce the risk of multimillion-dollar lawsuits faced by well-known companies over the past several years.
The impact of inaccessibility:
Million people who are blind or visually impaired in the U.S.
With research finding that blind users abandon two transactions each month due to inaccessible websites, companies are losing billions of dollars each year from inaccessibility.
U.S. consumers who walk away in frustration when disappointed by a brand’s words or actions on a social issue
More and more, consumers are seeking out brands that align with their values like diversity and inclusion. They’re even willing to stop doing business with brands that don’t support their values in words or actions. Companies that fail to be inclusive of people with disabilities risk losing not just customers who are disabled but also those who disapprove of this shortcoming.
