Who is responsible for accessibility in your organization? Answer: Everyone. In this follow-up to our 2021 webinar "Accessibility: Beyond Compliance," we explored, in detail, the various accessibility roles and responsibilities. Straive’s Senior Director of Accessibility, Todd Marquis Boutin, was joined by three panelists who specialize in building and advising accessibility teams: Jennifer Chadwick (Senior Accessibility Consultant, Global, Siteimprove), Pina D’Intino (Accessibility Consultant, Aequum Global Access), and Brian Thompson (Accessibility Strategy and Implementation Manager, Great Minds).
