Global Accessibility Awareness Day:

This year, pledge to improve your site's accessibility.

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of GAAD! Through their efforts, more people are aware of the importance of digital accessibility than ever before, but the vast majority of sites and software products are still lagging behind the needs of the One Billion people worldwide who have a disability. Fewer than 2% of home pages are fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Is yours one of them?

Join Olark in pledging to do your part in improving your site accessibility in 2021 in honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day.

Join one of the 150+ of events celebrating GAAD...
or host your own!

Our business is built on human to human communication, which means we need to build and include all humans. We still have more to do to make our corner of the web accessible. We partnered with GAAD to help spread the word and direct the tech community to resources so they can do the same.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion, and the more than One Billion people with disabilities / impairments. Learn how you can deliver a first-rate digital experience to ALL users, and ensure that people with disabilities can be successful with your digital goods and services.
