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

The Power of Purpose: How to Elevate your Business by Uncovering your Social Purpose @ Webinar
Sep 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The Power of Purpose: How to Elevate your Business by Uncovering your Social Purpose @ Webinar

A company’s purpose is the reason the business exists. Purpose is more than a mission or vision statement, it grounds your business, and conveys what your company stands for in its ethical, emotional and practical terms. It is the heartbeat of a company.

Integrating a social purpose will alter the course of your business by helping to attract and retain employees, enhance corporate culture, increase customer loyalty, and positively impact your bottom line. This can be key to your business as you recover from effects of the pandemic, and can be done without any financial investment.

Join us on September 29 as we host Christina Labarca and Sharon Davis, Founders of Giving Well, to uncover how a social purpose can become your company’s competitive advantage! We’ll discuss:

  • What is social purpose and why is it important?
  • How to uncover your company’s social purpose
  • Giving back through time, talent and treasure
  • Examples of businesses benefitting from a social purpose
