- This step will empower corporates to add disability into their diversity and inclusion plan, widen access to more talent and skills at a time when hybrid working mode, knowledge sharing through
virtual eventsis gaining mainstream significance due to COVID192.0 impact.
With this, regardless of the disabilities that some of the virtual event attendees might have (visual impairedness, dyslexia, etc.), Kestone would be able to provide them with equally immersive digital event experience based on their unique accessibility needs. This step will empower corporates to add disability into their diversity and inclusion plan, widen access to more talent and skills at a time when hybrid working mode, knowledge sharing through virtual events is gaining mainstream significance due to COVID19 2.0 impact.
Speaking about the initiative,
Digital tech innovation has never been more significant than it is today. With only 1 in 10 PWDs having access to the virtual technologies according to the WHO and the pandemic protocols impacting their lives and mental health all the more, India needs to accelerate technology adoption in its disability inclusion road map. Considering that flexible and disability-inclusive work policies benefit employees across the board and boost an organization’s resilience, communication and knowledge sharing through virtual events will need to have such assistive technology at its base. As companies rethink their business models and work environments to adapt to the pandemic, disability inclusion will take a vital significance.
The future will need the marketing tech world to innovate around designing content solutions that ensure accessibility, inculcate thoughtful adjustments, support inclusivity, and remove disability discrimination within information and communication technologies. With Govt.’s Accessible India Campaign (Sugamya Bharat Abhiyan) that aims to achieve universal accessibility for PWDs and the corporate world endeavoring to adopt remote working, touchless technology due to the pandemic impact, India is sure to embark on a promising start and the role and contribution of virtual tech designers will become more integral.
