Social Media Accessibility and Disability Inclusion

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Time to use Social Media to strengthen the voices of the community of individuals with disabilities? This session will provide strategies to assure that your message is accessible and relevant to the community of persons with disabilities. Social Media is providing a huge opportunity for our community including recruiting, employment, advocacy, education and human rights advancements. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) there are 1 in 7 people in the world that have a disability. Social Media is a conduit that can strength and empower the voices of persons with disabilities. However Social Media must be accessible from both a design issue but also a bandwidth and digital divide perspective. This session will show ways that we can use Social Media to empower persons with disabilities, find our voices and address accessibility so everyone can participate.
