Building Better Accessibility Teams and Partnerships

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).

Watch Building Better Accessibility Teams and Partnerships Webinar. Together, the panelists examined how organizations can reduce uncertainty, increase efficiency, and improve individual buy-in by clearly defining how each person, from managers to developers, could contribute to producing accessible products. They also shared client and vendor perspectives on forming, developing, and maintaining effective accessibility partnerships.
