Plan for Accessibility
Consider accessibility as you begin every project. Even if you have limited time, take on just one aspect now, and tackle others later. That way you may not have to retrofit materials upon request, which ultimately can take more time, resources, and money.
Promote Digital Accessibility
Build awareness and practice skills with the Cultivate Inclusion Challenge!
Provide Accessible Content and Events
All digital content and in-person and online events should all be as accessible to the widest range of audiences as possible, no matter what format it is presented in. After you learn the accessibility core skills, you can extend them by learning more about content and events presented in different formats.
