One of the best things about working in the field of accessibility is that one doesn’t have to seek recognition. Just do the work to your best and recognition comes automatically.
I’m honored to be one of the recepients of 2021 Award of Excellence at Watermark Insights LLC. This is one of the highest and annual recognitions at Watermark.
Usually we say getting an award increases our responsibility. I’d say this not only increases my responsibility but of everyone across the company. Because as an accessibility leader, my success is dependent on the support and work done by everyone else. An accessibility leader alone having ideas would not do anything good unless there is support for execution by the product, design, development and QA organizations. So accessibility is everyone’s responsibility.
I’m grateful to all of my colleagues, executive leadership and the board of Watermark for consistant support for accessibility. Also, congratulations to all of fellow awardees for 2021 Award of Excellence at Watermark.
