Accessible Technology Charter
Nearly 10 years ago, we launched the Accessible Technology Charter which sets out ten commitments to good practice on ICT accessibility.
By understanding how accessibility works in numerous areas of your business and making a commitment to improve things, you’ll make it easier for you and your colleagues to assess where you are and make the necessary changes.
Those that have signed up to the Charter, all of which are listed below, have made a pledge that they will ensure people living with a disability or who acquire a disability can apply for jobs with them, be employed by them, and do business with them, by implementing an inclusive technology strategy which includes the following commitments to accessibility.”
Although you’ll not be monitored against your Charter commitment, this isn’t something that you should take lightly. This should be signed off by your senior digital leader/ CIO/ CTO and it is their responsibility to ensure that all aspects of the Charter are embedded within your business.
If your organisation would like to explore signature but you need further information, please contact us at email@example.com or download the guidance and process notes in order to start your organisation’s internal engagement and conversations on IT accessibility.
