Fireside Chat: Deconstructing Digital Inclusion
Watch our Fireside Chat Webinar with Cyber-Duck's Siji Onabanjo and Yahye Siyad as they discuss how to bridge the digital divide and our passion to achieve digital inclusion.
Over the last two years, digital services have been essential for work and social life and provided many of us with a level of stability during the global pandemic. In fact, 53% of people say they wouldn’t have coped through the Coronavirus crisis without digital technology (Lloyds UK CDI 2021).
However, our growing reliance on technology and the Internet has exacerbated digital exclusion. Whether it’s due to digital skills, poor Internet access or a disability, not everyone is able to use technology and online services in the same way. And despite good intentions, many organisations still struggle when it comes to delivering accessible websites and digital services.
Watch below our Fireside Chat Webinar, hosted by Siji Onabanjo (Chief Growth Officer) with our new Diversity & Accessibility Lead, Yahye Siyad.
Welcoming questions and involvement throughout from you, the audience. Remember, you can always contact us for a free UX audit to discover how you can make your website more inclusive.
As the Chief Growth Officer at Cyber-Duck, Siji is responsible for leading the agency’s business development and securing rewarding opportunities for Cyber-Duck and our clients. This year he was recognised in the BD100 list (recognising the UK’s top 100 business developers) and TechRound’s 50 Under 50 BAME Entrepreneurs.
Outside of Cyber-Duck, Siji runs The B in BAME, a podcast series telling the stories of inspiring and influential Black entrepreneurs and leaders.
Yahye has a wealth of personal and professional experience in diversity and inclusion. Born in Somalia with a visual impairment caused by retinal dystrophy, Yahye is a former Team GB Paralympian and certified awareness trainer for the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities [UNCRPD].
As Diversity & Accessibility Lead, Yahye’s role is focused on supercharging Cyber-Duck’s existing focus on inclusive and accessible digital transformation projects, as well as helping shape the internal culture.
Whatever the project or particular challenge you have in mind, we’re here with the right people, process and technology to help deliver the transformation you need.
