Is Your Event Accessible to Everyone? A Guide to Event Design that Fully Includes Participants with Disabilities
October 19, 2022
ADA guidelines provide a good foundation for creating accessible events, but they only scratch the surface. Participants may need accommodations for a wide variety of physical or cognitive disabilities, or sensory challenges and supports – some of which may not be immediately visible to observers.
We will discuss the accommodations that should be part of every event team’s toolkit, from the most common to some that you may not have encountered firsthand yet. Learn how to think with an accessibility mindset and develop a habit of identifying and resolving potential barriers to access throughout the event planning process.
After participating in this session, you will be able to:
- Develop workflows in your event planning process that seamlessly incorporate accessibility considerations
- Incorporate language and tactics that respect the dignity of every participant equally
- Learn how to resolve unexpected challenges onsite
