Putting the “A” in IDEA: Accessible Communications for PR & Comms Pros

November 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

November 9, 2022, 12 to 1 p.m.

Zoom

The importance of inclusion, diversity and equity in communications has been brought to the forefront of conversations in the past few years.

However, the concept of accessible communications still seems to be an afterthought.

We as professional communicators must ensure we’re incorporating accessibility in every element of what we do to ensure we’re not missing out on the 15% of the population who identify as having a disability.

It’s time we think about inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) when we’re working on our various communications initiatives.

Join Matisse Hamel-Nelis, ADS, CPACC, international award winner, Vice President of Communications for AbleDocs – the worldwide leader in accessibility products and services – and Vice President of Communications, Marketing & Digital Media for IABC/Toronto, for an educational webinar focused on understanding the role accessibility plays in communication and DEI initiatives.

The session will be loaded with pro tips to help you build your understanding of accessibility and how you can start incorporating it into your content creation process.

Fees:

  • $15: IABC Member rate ($16.95 with HST)
  • $25: Non-Member rate ($28.25 with HST)

“As professional communicators, we’re the gatekeepers of information for our brands and our audiences. If we implement best practices that ensure accessible content creation, we set a tone that accessibility should be the standard.”

– Matisse Hamel-Nelis
