Learn how to make your events accessible, whether they're in-person, virtual or a mixture of both.

About this event

Learn about important practices and guidelines to keep in mind when hosting your event, whether it's in-person or virtual or a mixture of both.

From captioning through to giving adequate time for breaks, making your event accessible in a variety of ways is tremendously important--and not as hard as you might think!

Join author and disability rights advocate Amanda Leduc in a discussion and review of some of the key accessibility features of both in-person and virtual spaces.
