Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) 2022

May 19, 2022, marks the 11th Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The intention of GAAD is to create more awareness of digital accessibility, inclusive design, and the impact their digital products may have on people with disabilities if they are not made accessible.

Three for Accessibility

In honor of GAAD, TPGi is hosting three events throughout the week to help educate people on digital accessibility, how inaccessible digital products like a self-service kiosk can impact people with disabilities, and what people are doing to create more inclusive user experiences for all.

Join us in supporting Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2022 and help the co-founders (Joe Devon and Jennison Asuncion) achieve their goal of increasing the global awareness of digital accessibility and helping make the world more inclusive.

TPGi’s GAAD 2022 Agenda:

May 17 – You Don’t Know, What You Don’t Know

TPGi’s Senior Accessibility Engineer, Jonny James is set to talk about how accessibility isn’t part of the bootcamp curriculum and how a torrent of new developers are unleashed into the workforce every year, unaware and unprepared. Jonny will draw from his own experience, challenging our existing paradigm of what it means to be qualified to work in this field and how the gatekeepers of web accessibility could be harming the industry, once referred to as “the business of empathy.”
