Diversity and Accessibility within the Creative Industries

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.

Recorded for the Festival of DAM 2021.
