We Are Known by the Company We Keep

AKEA is an agency that provides professional web consulting services. Because of this, it is important for us to always be learning and contributing to further the causes in which we are engaged.

As such, we are active and contributing members in the communities that have been established to address the incredible need to evolve the Internet to be more inclusive.

The web needs to be inclusive of all users. When digital environments are inclusive, it benefits all users – regardless of ability or disability.

In order for advocates and the creators of digital environments to work together, these associations have been founded and are dedicated to improving the Internet.

AKEA is proud to be a part of these associations.
