Accessibility: Make Your Work and Life More Inclusive
This Week at Hub101
When you give a presentation, send an email or share images and videos on social media, have you ever thought to yourself, "Would my coworkers/classmates/customers who are blind or have low vision be given the opportunity to understand all the content I’m sharing?" What if they were hard of hearing or color blind?
There are so many small things we do in our everyday lives that unknowingly create barriers for people with disabilities. 15% of the world’s population lives with some form of disability, so it becomes vital for a successful business, employee and friend to be conscious of how to carry oneself in an accessible way. This virtual workshop with Gina Domergue will cover things we can do to make our presentations, emails and everyday life more accessible. Everyone is welcome!
The workshop is free but registration is required. Registered participants will receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
Domergue is a Cal Lutheran alumna and current software engineer at Google. Before joining Google, she was a software engineer at Amazon where she worked on the Device Accessibility team and discovered her passion for accessibility. She strives to bring attention to the importance of accessibility not only in tech, but also in our everyday lives. (The facilitator, Gina, is a woman in a red shirt in her late 20s with long brown hair, glasses, and smiling at the camera.)
Week at Hub101 is a series of free, weekly, interactive workshops open to students, Hub101 members and the broader community to learn, collaborate and create.
