Disability:IN DC Metro and eSSENTIAL Accessibility are cohosting an event to focus on the importance of managing third party vendors when it comes to asking about digital accessibility. Hear from Kris Rivenburgh
, eSSENTIAL Accessibility Chief Legal and Accessibility Officer, as he discusses industry’s best practices.
Ensuring your website and digital assets are accessible means creating the most usable experience for the widest possible audience, including users with disabilities. Even one barrier can mean the difference between a successful purchase for your business, and a sale for a more accessible competitor.
A commitment to accessibility is an ongoing journey as content, standards, and regulations evolve. It takes talent, technology, and time to get it right. But all of your hard work can unravel in an instant, putting you at increased risk of a compliance-related lawsuit, if you integrate an inaccessible digital product from a third-party vendor. So, how can you ensure your product vendors are supporting – not sabotaging – your digital accessibility efforts? In this session, we’ll address what it takes to create, adopt, and require a vendor accessibility policy (and how forward-thinking partners should respond).We look forward to seeing you there
