Now more than ever, your website and digital properties are the first impression and front door into your business. With that in mind, your front door should be inviting and accessible for everyone, so staying on top of your accessibility journey has never been more important.

According to the World Wide Web Consortium, one in five people in the United States have a disability. Accessibility practices and techniques allow people of all abilities to be able to interact and conduct business with you online. In a recent Forbes article, a study was cited where 71% of individuals with disabilities noted that they’ll abandon a site that’s difficult to use. Don’t let that site be yours!

In this engaging and interactive session, hear from experts from Americaneagle.com and Siteimprove as they talk about accessibility and your business, and how you can be proactive in providing amazing customer experiences online for people of ALL abilities.
