Bengaluru, NFAPost: Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, announced its collaboration with the Centre for Accessibility Australia to help drive awareness and inspire a more accessible and inclusive community via the Australian Access Awards.
Following the success of the launch of the award in 2019, the Centre for Accessibility Australia supported by Infosys is hosting this bi-annual event to recognise organisations and individuals that are committed to optimising digital access in their campaigns, services or resources.
An integral part of this collaboration is the Centre for Accessibility Australia acting as a trusted advisor to Infosys on digital accessibility. As an invited member on the Accessible Platform Task Force in W3C (World
Wide Web Consortium) this advisory is crucial to Infosys’ Australia and New Zealand’s CSR program.
Known as Pathways this programme strives to enable more digitally accessible learning experiences for people
Infosys Senior Vice President and Region Head Australia and New Zealand Andrew Groth said improving accessibility in workplaces and community is a continuous journey and there’s a lot that can be optimised.
“We are committed to that journey through Pathways and our other workplace initiatives, creating more digital
accessibility opportunities within our organisation. On Global Accessibility Awareness Day we’re delighted to join hands with the Centre for Accessibility Australia for the Australian Access Awards to help drive awareness and inspire change among organisations in the region,” said Andrew Groth.
Centre for Accessibility Australia CEO Scott Hollier said the organisation is proud to become an advisor to Infosys and partner with them for the Australian Access Awards which we believe can really help encourage inclusive and accessible experiences within the workplace and wider community.
“Today we are opening nominations for the 2021 Awards, which will be held on November 19 this year,” said Scott Hollier.
The Centre for Accessibility is a national not-for-profit organisation that recognises and supports businesses, organisations and individuals to advance the inclusion of people with disability across all areas of the digital environment.
