Today we celebrate and spread awareness for the 11th Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). GAAD was founded by Co-Founders Joe Devon and Jennison Asuncion with the goal of getting the world to talk, think and learn about digital access/inclusion and the people with different disabilities who need them.
In the video above, our CEO and Founder Lukas Simianer speaks upon the importance of accessibility everywhere, including the workplace, and how impactful Joe and Jennison have been in his life as mentors and to the world as accessibility evangelists.
The idea of a Global Accessibility Awareness Day started with a single blog post written by a Los Angeles-based web developer, Joe Devon. that served as the inspiration for Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
