Australia, May 20, 2021
Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today 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 awards launch 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 program strives to enable more digitally accessible learning experiences for people with disability.
“Improving accessibility in our workplaces and community is a continuous journey and there’s a lot that can be optimised,” said Andrew Groth, SVP Infosys and Region Head Australia and New Zealand. “We’re 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.”
Scott Hollier, CEO of Centre for Accessibility Australia said, “We are 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.”
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.
