Embracing Accessibility in the Whole Organization: New Approaches and Resources

Event Date/Time: 

Thursday, August 30th, 2018
12:30 PM EDT - 1:00 PM EDT




What do you mean when you say your organization “embraces accessibility”? Does that mean hiring, retaining and promoting people with disabilities? Ensuring that customers who have disabilities are treated fairly and respectfully? Making sure that the technologies customers and employees use is accessible (not just the internet website, but also the staff intranet, the phone system, and even break-room vending machines)? We usually find that “embracing accessibility” involves enthusiastically tackling one or two areas, but rarely does it span the entire organization. In this presentation, we’ll look at the latest thinking and resources for taking organization-wide approaches to embracing accessibility.

  • This webinar will be presented via the Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing platform.
  • Real-time captioning will be available through the webinar platform.
  • A telephone conference option will also be available should you choose not to use the webinar platform.
