The Universal Acceptance (UA) Community Update during ICANN71 Prep Week (1-3 June 2021) – which preceded the ICANN Virtual Policy Forum on 14 June – featured renown panelists from across the Internet and domain name ecosystem, including those who lead various ICANN Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs). In addition to receiving an update on UA training, research, and outreach efforts, session participants had the chance to hear pragmatic insights from each panelist on what they believe is needed to achieve an #Internet4All.
To summarize the key takeaways, session moderator Maria Kolesnikova, Chair of the UASG Communications Working Group, asked each panelist to share their opinions regarding how the UASG can collaborate with SOs and ACs to promote and achieve UA-readiness. The following is an excerpt overview of their responses and closing thoughts on the topic – these suggestions and insights will be taken into consideration for upcoming UASG planning initiatives. The entire session is available to watch, here.
