Why?

To learn more about:

• Why digital accessibility is essential to our evolving work online.

• Key ways to make our work more digitally accessible, including events, meeting and communication.

• The Disability Inclusion Team and its role at UN Geneva, and the UN Disability Inclusion Strategy.

• Further resources and links to integrate disability inclusion in our teams.

This session will explore how we can all support virtual accessibility through our work. The importance of digital accessibility of events, meetings, communications and more has been increasingly highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. And, as we continue to work in a largely online setting and look to a more virtual way of working in the coming years, the accessibility of our work online is a critical step to ensuring and supporting the inclusion of persons with disabilities. This session aims to outline key tips and recommendations for making many parts of our work more accessible, from meetings and events, to content, documents, and how we moderate and speak online. 

This session is part of the #BuildBackBetter series at the Commons, which focuses on how we can continue to evolve and change as we work online in response to COVID-19, but also as we move forward in the virtual environment in a sustainable way. Previous sessions have looked at the 101 of producing online live events, and preparing for a virtual 46th Human Rights Council session.  

Members of the Disability Inclusion Team will take us through some key areas where we can make digital accessibility a reality in our day-to-day work and support disability inclusion at UN Geneva and beyond.
