Festival of DAM 2021

A celebration of all things DAM


Diversity and Accessibility within the Creative Industries

September 1, 11:45 AM

Searching for content relies on Keywords and search technology. But uploading images, and adding metadata, is not always enough.

Digital Asset Managers and Product Information Managers are increasingly aware of the growing need to optimize metadata for diverse communities, and to ensure users with disabilities have the same opportunities to search and find relevant content.

Join Natalie Trevonne-Gross, Marketing & Outreach Coordinator, Blind Institute of Technology and Clemency Wright, Founder and Director, Clemency Wright Consultancy for a candid discussion and real-life examples about key diversity and accessibility issues facing DAM and PIM managers today, and what steps can be taken to make search better for all users.

What others say

HS DAM events wrangle an incredible amount of information into clear, managed presentations - facilitating one of the best virtual events I've been in. I continue to learn something new each and every session.

HS DAM events has set the bar for virtual conferences! Live sessions, engaging polls and questions boxes, chats with attendees, and virtual contests for swag...I don't know how a virtual conference could be more awesome! I look forward to this conference every year and the team at HS never disappoints!
