Accessibility: Plan Ahead
Accessibility and inclusion refer to more than just the physical characteristics of a facility. Policies, programs, services, and effective communication also play a role. The solution is to create a roadmap with organizational buy-in at all levels: board, staff, volunteers, artists, and visitors.
About the Workshop
Accessibility: Plan Ahead is a one-day convening addressing the why, what, and how of building a plan for accessibility and inclusion. Through consultation with ADA professionals and people with various disabilities, participants will gain:
- the ability to assess the accessibility or an organization’s facilities, programs, and policies
- an awareness of nondiscrimination and accessibility laws and how they apply to nonprofit organizations
- an understanding of what a comprehensive accessibility plan is and how to create it
- tools, resources, and knowledge of ways to implement change
who should attend
