Now that organizations are well on their way to meeting the province's AODA standards of accessibility, it's time to think beyond technical compliance to the true meaning of inclusion for people with disabilities.
Ruth Wright leads the Accessible Organizations research practice at The Conference Board of Canada. In this webinar, she will share insights from recent research and take participants on a journey beyond compliance. She will lead a demonstration of a new online self-assessment tool that will help you establish a baseline from which to take your organization to the next level of accessibility.
Webinar participants will come away with a practical understanding of the tool and best practice measures that an organization can do beyond compliance with legislation to create a culture of accessibility and inclusion. They can also get some questions answered that relate to practical aspects of making our organizations more accessible.
- Learn the difference between inclusion and a holistic, systems-based approach to true inclusion
- Learn how to effectively navigate the self-assessment tool
- Learn how to interpret the results of their assessment
- Learn about the resources section to help go beyond compliance and help with areas that need improvement
