DHS Accessibility Day 2021 is a two-day, free digital event experience that brings together people with disabilities, accessibility professionals, and allies within DHS to enhance the user experience through accessible technology. Even people who may not have anything to do with technology or accessibility are encouraged to join us.
The event will be held over two days: Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time.
Last year, we had over 500 participants in attendance. We will have over 20 presenters for this year's event. Did you know that more than 12 DHS Components have a team with accessibility expertise?
The event is only available to federal employees and federal contractors within the United States Government.
