Thank you for wanting to get involved in accessibility advocacy after attending the Accessibility Keynote Fireside Chat with Jennison Asuncion. Jennison co-founded Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) in 2012. Happening on the third Thursday each May, GAAD calls upon the tech community to learn about and experience digital access issues encountered by people with disabilities. On the occasion of GAAD's 10th anniversary in 2021, he co-founded the GAAD Foundation, whose mission is to disrupt the culture of technology and digital product development to include accessibility as a core requirement. Jennison has been working in digital accessibility since 2006, beginning on Royal Bank of Canada (RBC's) IT Accessibility Team in Toronto. He was recruited to the Silicon Valley in 2013 to formalize LinkedIn’s digital accessibility efforts. Currently he is their Head of Accessibility Engineering Evangelism. In 2020, Business Insider named Jennison "1 of 30 power players helping new CEO Ryan Roslansky run LinkedIn. Most recently, his Alma Mater, Concordia University, recognized him as a 2023 Benoît Pelland Alumnus of the Year for "demonstrated professional excellence, community leadership and a long-term commitment of outstanding service in their field.” Learn more about the Global Accessibility Awareness Day (May 18) at
