This Thursday, May 16, 2019, is the eighth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of GAAD is to get more institutions and individuals talking, thinking, and learning about digital access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.

The Office for Access and Equity (OAE) in the University of Chicago Office of the Provost’s Equal Opportunity Programs recently published an Accessible Event Resource Guide and Accessible Event Resource Guide Checklist to help event planners improve the accessibility of their events and provide reasonable accommodations. For additional accessibility resources, view the OAE website.
