Getting Involved with WAI
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) brings together individuals and organizations from around the world to develop strategies, guidelines, and resources to help make the Web accessible to people with disabilities. We welcome participants from industry, disability organizations, education, government, research, and others interested in accessibility. We invite you (yes, you!) to get involved in WAI work; see Participating in WAI.
