Highlighting its commitment to digital inclusion and accessibility, customer relationship management (CRM) platform Salesforce, Inc. devoted a significant portion of its recent FY 2022 Stakeholder Impact Report to its partnership with InclusionHub—a crowd-sourced digital accessibility and inclusion services directory, community, and resource nexus.
“In February 2021, we joined InclusionHub as a founding partner,” it reads. “A first-of-its-kind a11y nexus that features crowd-sourced ratings and reviews from a global audience of digital accessibility experts and practitioners, InclusionHub provides an unbiased, transparent, and searchable database of companies that specialize in all aspects of digital inclusion.”
Since joining InclusionHub, Salesforce’s team has been collaborating on content initiatives with and for the accessibility community.
The report details the joint “Voice of the Employee” program between the Fortune 500 company and InclusionHub, which gives any Salesforce employee the opportunity to share their story on the latter.
“We are privileged to be in a position where we can help create something with and for the community,” Frantz notes in the report. “We aim to keep InclusionHub relevant by regarding it as a work-in-progress collaboration with the community's evolving insight, feedback, and needs.”
Besides Salesforce, InclusionHub’s founding partners include digital marketing agency Morey Creative Studios, leading accessibility platform Fable, and Be My Eyes—a free app connecting blind and low-vision people with sighted volunteers.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better founding partner for InclusionHub than the team at Salesforce,” explains Morey Creative Studios President Jon Sasala. “Since coming on board with us, they have displayed a level of commitment to digital inclusion that truly sets them apart in the field. For InclusionHub to be featured so prominently as part of Salesforce’s public commitment to live up to their values is both humbling and an incredible honor.”
