In 2017, there were 814 federal lawsuits related to website accessibility. In 2018, that number skyrocketed to 2,285 and in 2019 there were 2,235 cases. Is your website and the content on it accessible to people of all abilities on all devices? Are you meeting your legal requirements for web accessibility?

This webinar will cover what website accessibility means, which organizations are legally required to have an accessible website (including a review of some recent legal cases), and how to identify and fix accessibility issues on your website. Additionally, we'll discuss how to create a culture of accessibility at your organization and get buy-in and budgetary support for accessibility improvements.
