Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is always special, but GAAD 2020 is more significant as this is truly global and virtual, all because of the pandemic Covid 2019! We from HelloA11Y are more excited to announce GAAD 2020 as a virtual event! We do have interesting topics on accessibility and renowned speakers to make the event more interesting.
So join us for an evening of networking & learning. The event will be hosted on Zoom & will be live streamed. Questions will be taken through zoom chat, twitter & YouTube live chat. We are trying to make the event as accessible as we can & working on getting the live captioning in place with help of sponsors.
