Accessibility Ambassadors - Student panel on accessibility: Everyone is welcome… but are we?

April 5, 2021

When discussing accessibility, digital or otherwise, there are a lot of things to consider—legal compliance, technical needs, standards, etc. However, at its very core, accessibility is about people. The reason that accessibility is important is because of the people who are affected by inaccessible content.

On April 29, we are very fortunate to have a group of University of Minnesota students who identify as people with disabilities willing to discuss their experiences and share how inaccessibility affects them in their lives, careers, and education.

Please join us!

Accessibility Ambassadors: Student panel
Thursday, April 29, noon-1 p.m. We will leave additional time for questions, if needed.

Registration for this session is required. Let us know if you are attending. Any accommodation requests should be made before April 15.
