Workshops bring together accessibility and other disability-related professionals to share ideas, lessons learned, and resources. So often in accessibility, we end up reinventing the same content in various organizations. Our goal is to create and maintain a library of resources and exemplars that professionals can use as a starting point. We also hope to have fun and learn from each other along the way.
There is no cost to participate.

What to Expect
- Focus on a single topic.
- Last for 1.5-hours.
- Use Zoom.
- Be conducted in English, captioned and have sign language interpreting.
The first part of each workshop will be presentations by experts on the workshop topic.
These talks will be recorded and stored in the library along with resulting resources. We will then break into subgroups to talk about the topic in more detail, generate new ideas, and share resources. During the last 5-10 minutes of each workshop, we will come back together to share our discussions with the wider group and create a small group of volunteers who will work together after the workshop is done to finalize the resulting resources and ideas.
