Coolest Companies Winner Crown

Digital Accessibility Solutions Leader Mixes Mission and Innovation to Create a Cool Culture

Level Access, the global leader in digital accessibility software and services, has been named DC Inno’s 2018 All Around Coolest Company in the Washington, D.C. area. To win this award, companies had to articulate why their company’s mission, culture, perks, office space, and more makes it a cool place to work every day. The team at DC Inno then narrowed down the choices and put them to a vote by the DC community.

On their website, DC Inno’s team describes their thought process: “Every company’s cool factor comes from a slightly different place. This year, we had dozens of companies nominated for a variety of awards. The competition is fierce, but, since cool is more a state of mind than a science, this contest celebrates everyone — and awards top distinctions to those that stood out most to Inno staff and readers.”

“A thriving business community comprises many parts, including fast-growing startups, pillar tech companies, coworking spaces, accelerators and more. Hand-picked by DC Inno’s editorial team, this year’s Coolest Companies run the gamut of industries but have one thing in common: employees there love to go to work every day,” said Kieran McQuilkin, new market editor, American Inno. “Level Access not only has a tight-knit, exciting corporate culture, but its accessibility mission is also helping raise up the D.C. technology ecosystem.”

Level Access’s cool factor is a result of the company’s mission to achieve digital equality for all users by ensuring technology is accessible to people with disabilities and the growing aging population. The company employs many people with disabilities, active in promoting accessibility awareness, and shapes digital standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

“We are thrilled to be named an All Around Coolest Company in the DC area,” said Colleen Wood, Chief People Officer, Level Access. “We work hard to create our cool inclusive, fun, family-like culture that makes Level Access a great place to work.”
