How to Make Your Virtual Meetings and Events Accessible to the Disability Community

Description

As meetings and events continue to take place in virtual spaces as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, accessibility is too often an afterthought. Even event organizers and activists who normally work to make sure their in-person events are accessible seem to forget that virtual events need to be accessible for the disability community, too. Data from the Pew Research Center shows that disabled people are actually much less likely to use the internet, which may be in part because inaccessibility remains a serious barrier. So, let’s break down this barrier. Accessibility for virtual events should be a priority and central to the planning process from the beginning.
