Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)

GAAD logo

GAAD was launched in 2012 and is held annually to get everyone talking, thinking, and learning about digital access and inclusion, and the more than one billion people with disabilities/impairments.

Members of the University of Minnesota community have hosted annual events to celebrate since at least 2022, and celebrated it in other ways earlier, such as in 2020 and 2021.
