Navigating Through the Noise of ADA Website Compliance in Multifamily Housing dives into the most highly discussed topic in the multifamily housing space and beyond: digital accessibility compliance. The webcast will delve into how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is being interpreted by legal experts to extend to online services and the measures necessary to ensure that websites, as well as the services provided, are accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities.
“We live in an interconnected world, one that is reliant on the Internet to deliver information, services, and resources through multiple online channels,” Kirby explained. “As physical buildings become more digitally dependent on their websites to transact and interact with both prospective and existing customers, these services must be accessible to everyone.”

Oriente responded, “Kerry is the ultimate go-to resource for all things digital within the multifamily housing arena, and I am excited to join him in this discussion on the growing need for digital accessibility awareness in our industry. Similar to all the material we produce for our webcast series, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the newest wave of developments in the market.”
Kirby concluded, “Over a billion people, approximately 15% of the world’s population, has some form of a disability that makes accessing the web difficult. Given the immense size of the modern-day market and the highly regulated world of rental housing, multifamily housing operators must be willing to invest in and implement a comprehensive approach to digital inclusion. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers.”
