Global Reach to Lead Workshop at ABIs Annual "Taking Care of Business Conference"

May 23, 2017

Dubuque, Iowa - Global Reach has been invited to present at ABI’s annual ‘Taking Care of Business’ conference, to be held on June 6th in Dubuque, Iowa. 

Global Reach’s own Director of Business Development, Taylor Wolf, is leading the workshop, ‘Accessibility for All,’ a crash course, of sorts, on ADA compliance as it relates to websites. 

With stricter requirements set to take effect next year, this session will shed a light on the potential interaction challenges that visual and audio impairments can cause as users browse a website. The workshop will also provide tips on how you can update your website to provide support for all of your users and deliver an understanding of the risks involved in non-compliance.
 
Over the last few years, Global Reach has seen a growing demand for website ADA compliance due to the rise in accessibility related lawsuits. The web firm works meticulously with clients to help them attain and maintain websites that are compliant with Section 508, ADA, and WCAG standards. However, compliance is not a “one-and-done” initiative. In order to ensure a website stays accessible to all, administrators must have a working knowledge of these standards as they add and edit content on their websites; part of the objective of the ‘Accessibility for All’ workshop is to provide attendees the resources to do just that.

“The goal is to work with session attendees to gain a greater empathy for how impaired visitors experience the web, as well as a practical knowledge of the subject so that website administrators can begin working to support these users,” said Taylor Wolf, the workshop’s presenter.

As Iowa’s premier business conference, organized by the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, the Taking Care of Business Conference places industry leaders from across the state under one roof, giving attendees the opportunity to learn, network and share ideas that will strengthen and foster growth within Iowa’s business landscape. While this is the first time Global Reach has presented at the conference, the company sponsors and attends the conference nearly every year.
