Workshop: Check Yourself – A Guide to Digital Accessibility Audits
Perhaps you know the basics and importance of accessibility, but you haven’t fully implemented the standards on your website and digital communications channels. In this session, participants will review basic terms, tips, and resources, and will walk away with tools to help audit their own channels. Participants will not only take actionable steps toward identifying accessibility weak spots, but will also feel empowered to continue the work of creating a more inclusive and compliant digital ecosystem within their organizations.
