What does it mean to make a business accessible? How do you do it? Are the considerations for staff and patrons different or do they overlap? Join Discover Ability Network to learn more in this interactive workshop. Beginning with a very brief overview of the AODA and resources to support compliance, the workshop addresses accessibility throughout the hiring and employment process, as well as storefronts for customers, and communication in digital media (websites, documents, etc.).
