Other Events & Annual Celebrations

Date Event
Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)

Year-round and
Third Thursday of May

Keep in mind, learn, and share about digital access and inclusion across platforms of mobile, software, websites, and technology throughout the year, Web Access Matters.

On the third Thursday of May, Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), 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 — take an hour out of your day to participate in GAAD: experience first-hand the impact of digital accessibility (or lack thereof).
