How to Include People with Disabilities: Planning for Accessibility in Web-Based Meetings.

Hosted By: Disabilities, Neurodivergence, and Allyship Working Group
Date: June 13, 3:00 pm

When you plan large meetings or online events: do you typically assume that everyone who attends is able to see, to hear, and to operate a mouse to navigate your conferencing platform? If so, you’re at risk of leaving out 20% of the world’s population – more than 1 billion people. Join Knowbility’s IT Director Mark Boyden to explore ways to provide fully inclusive and accessible remote meetings and events. You’ll learn what considerations to make as you choose a platform, set it up for your event, and communicate with your potential attendees. The steps to inclusion are not complex but are completely necessary in order to be sure that everyone can attend and participate equally. The speaker will be Mark Boyden, Knowbility Inc.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness and Disabilities, Neurodivergence, and Allyship Working Groups.
