ZOOM Meeting - Register in Advance

COVID-19 created an instant flip in the mindset regarding so many issues that the disability community has advocated for, for so long. From telework and wearing masks to the use of single-use plastics, as well as price gauging, these examples have been implemented to prevent COVID-19. These examples also fit into the overall idea of Universal Design. The list of COVID-19 preventions that create access to work, school, and health during a pandemic, also provides equity for the disability community. In being Universally Designed, all are benefitted, and Universal Design will continue to be beneficial long after the end of COVID-19. Join us for this webinar where we will share these concepts, resources and tools to discuss moving forward in making our communities more inclusive.

Learning Objectives:

Universal Design: What it is and why it is beneficial for everyone
Issues that the disability community have been addressing for years but didn't become mainstream until COVID-19
COVID-19 disease prevention protocols and their impact on the disability community
How to provide equity to the disability community now and continue to do so after COVID-19
