Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2024

May 16, 2024

Annual Day

GAAD 2024 falls on May 16th this year and we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of events being held all over the world, both in person and online.This event is about raising awareness and encouraging involvement in your organization’s accessibility journey. With the European Accessibility Act fast approaching now is more important than ever to increase the availability of your digital content to readers with print disabilities.

No doubt you have matters in hand. If your organization has an accessibility advocate then this is their chance to build awareness and co-ordinate activities that your teams may be able to take part in whether at home or in the office. Our publishers toolkit will give you lots of ideas and help get you started.

We’ve also been through the hundreds of events advertised on the GAAD website and selected a few webinars that you may like to check out.

We enjoy hearing about your events afterwards so do please let us know how you celebrated this important day so that we can include you in our GAAD overview.
