To mark the ninth annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day, we have published the Inclusive Experience Practice: Designing for Everyone report. This new report makes the case brands designing products and services, and marketing for and with people of all abilities leads to more innovative designs and competitive advantage. In addition, its release on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, May 21, 2020, calls attention to the fact that 1 billion people worldwide have disabilities and there are now legal requirements for all digital media to be accessible in many countries around the world.
We're also excited to share that two of our leaders were featured in the sessions at Microsoft's 10th Annual Ability Summit, which brings together panels to imagine, build, and empower the future of disability inclusion and accessibility. Christina Mallon, our Global Inclusive Design and Digital Accessibility Lead, was a panelist for 'Inclusion by Design: BUILD' and Taras Wayner, Chief Creative Officer of Wunderman Thompson North America, joined Christina for the panel 'Telling Our Story - Authentic Representation of Disability on the Screen and Beyond: EMPOWER'.
