"Digital accessibility is one of the most important — if not the most important — diversity, equity, and inclusion topics for our society. For this reason, regulatory bodies are issuing new regulations to ensure digital accessibility provides people who have any functional difficulties with the same rights as everyone else in accessing the job market and in living a decent and socially acceptable life. It is paramount that technologies enable everyone's inclusion and that no one is left behind." — Senior Research Analyst Erica Spinoni, European Future of Work and Digital Business Strategies, IDC Europe
