Introducing the GAAD Foundation!
The GAAD Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to disrupt the culture of technology and digital product development to include accessibility as a core requirement.
Our vision is for accessibility to be built into the product development lifecycle for technology and digital products.
Global Accessibility Awareness Day
The third Thursday of each May is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion, and the more than One Billion people with disabilities/impairments.
The #GAADPledge invites those ready to take public, tangible actions to make accessibility a core value of their frameworks and digital products. The GAAD Pledge is open to all organizations and can be taken throughout the year as a long-term commitment to accessibility.
