Organizational representatives will be given an accessibility checklist and be taught how to use it. Although 72 percent of nonprofit organizations say they have a policy of nondiscrimination against people with disabilities, too few take simple steps to make their programming truly accessible. For example, fewer than 60 percent of their events are always held in physically accessible spaces. Fewer than one-third (30 percent) offer opportunities for participants at public events to request accommodations like sign language interpreters, live captioning or food allergy alternatives. This session trained organizations to ensure that their practices match their principles so that their organizations can benefit from the talents and perspectives of people with disabilities, just like anyone else.
