Digital Accessibility is absolutely crucial for the 1 in 4 New Zealanders with access needs and disabilities to access the goods, services and information that they need online. And what's more, ensuring online accessibility also helps New Zealand businesses to tap into a larger market represented by the access customer. With digital accessibility, everyone wins!

Many businesses want to improve accessibility, but just don't know where to start. So in collaboration with Digital Boost we have put together two webinars and a podcast explaining the "why" and "how" of online accessibility, especially tailored for those starting out on their accessibility journey.

How to watch

View the upcoming webinars on the Digital Boost Facebook or LinkedIn pages, or Youtube channel. (Videos stream live on Tuesday 3rd May and Tuesday 10th May at 10am, but can be accessed any time after those dates).
