One in four Americans has a disability, and 20 percent of these individuals are people of color. Despite ramped-up efforts to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, organizations often lag when it comes to ensuring their events are welcoming and accessible to all.
In fact, in the interest of full transparency, the Chronicle has lagged in making its virtual events accessible and inclusive. We are learning how to do better as we plan this session with our expert guests. We hope you’ll join us to understand how you can create inclusive virtual events and broaden your nonprofit’s reach.
Join us for a 75-minute webinar in which our panel of expert guests will explain how to:
- get started — and how to prioritize — when improving accessibility at an event
- develop accessible event communications and programming
- foster an organizational culture that values these efforts
Plus, you’ll get smart tips for how to include accessibility features in an event — and keep costs low.
You’ll learn how to:
- Persuade leaders to invest in making online gatherings more accessible
- Create a plan to improve accessibility at an event — and adapt your budget
- Ensure communications materials are accessible and welcoming to donors with disabilities
At the Chronicle we strive to host accessible and inclusive events. This session includes live captioning and ASL interpretation. To request other accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-466-1032 by February 14.
