Small Changes, Big Impact: Creating an Accessible Website for All @ Webinar
Aug 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Small Changes, Big Impact: Creating an Accessible Website for All @ Webinar

Did you know that persons with disabilities are the third largest economic power in the world, after the US and China? Accessing the internet every day, 70% will leave a website instantly if it is inaccessible.

This means you could be losing potential business as a result of something as simple as website design. Besides the fact that eighty percent of persons with disabilities rate accessibility above price when choosing where to purchase, creating a more accessible website helps to create a more equitable world.

So we’re excited to host Kale Gosen, Co-Founder of Humanize Consulting, for a free interactive session to share website improvements that might not even be on your competitors’ radar.

In this webinar, Kale will cover:

  • How people with various disabilities access the internet;
  • The types of barriers they face, and how you can minimize them; and
  • Tips and advice about tweaking your website design to achieve a more accessible site.

If you want to expand your reach and connect with new clients, then this is a must!

Take a seat and join us for this interactive WECafé where you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and gain industry insight in an open and welcoming environment.

August 19 | 10am to 11am PT | Free Webinar

A recording will be available after the live session
