About this event

In today’s current environment, digital inclusivity is more important than ever. Creating accessible content is a key strategy for improving the reach of our information and responding to the evolving needs of the public and our colleagues. It also supports our commitment to create and nurture a respectful, equitable, accessible, diverse, and inclusive (READI) workplace.

Learn how easy it can be to remove barriers and create accessible content at source .

Join the Accessibility & Inclusion Unit’s Accessibility Business Advisor – Stacey Hernden to build your awareness and capacity for digital inclusion through a 101 session covering key concepts of how to create accessible Word content/documents covered in the MNRF Basics of Creating Accessible Word Content.
