Other Events & Annual Celebrations

Date Event
Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)

Third Thursday of May

On the third Thursday of May, Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) aims to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.

While people may be interested in the topic of making technology accessible and usable by persons with disabilities, the reality is that they often do not know how or where to start. Awareness comes first. Whether you participate in an public or private event, join us and take an hour out of your day to experience first-hand the impact of digital accessibility (or lack thereof).
