May 27, 2021 BY SOFIA ENAMORADO

As we begin to return to the normalities of pre-pandemic life, things are beginning to feel almost normal.

However, we can’t deny that many things have changed and now need to figure out how to balance new habits with old routines. For many, this means maintaining the flexibility of a hybrid environment and continuing to invest in digital communications.

And at the core of this is accessibility.
 

At ACCESS at Home, we'll explore:
  • Lessons about accessibility from the pandemic
  • How to create accessible and inclusive hybrid workplaces
  • The risks of ignoring web accessibility as we transition back to normal
  • And the legal landscape of accessibility in 2021
