Community-Centered Accessibility & Disability Inclusion

Date & Time
Friday, March 17, 2023 - 2:20 PM PST  
Elite 1-3  
Most accessibility efforts focus on large organizations but people with disabilities often interact with small or medium businesses, non-profits, and community organizations. These organizations need help improving the accessibility of their facilities, websites, social media, events, and more. Accessible Community’s mission focuses on helping: ● small-to-medium size organizations become accessible and ● people with disabilities find accessible and disability support organizations within their communities. At the same time, this all-volunteer non-profit helps accessibility experts grow their experience and connections. We achieve these complementary goals through following efforts: • - a web application that guides novices through accessibility evaluations, • -a web application that helps people with disabilities find accessible organizations in their communities, • The Accessibility Mentoring Program that connects novice and experienced accessibility experts, and • Virtual communities that share resources and ideas on in specific topics relating to accessibility. During this talk you will learn about these activities and how you can participate in each.
