With an extensive and dynamic history of making its campus and courses increasingly accessible to students with disabilities, Carleton University is committed to being the most accessible in Canada. This panel discussion examines how this commitment to accessibility has been further shaped and informed by COVID-19 and how this will impact the transition to a new reality of higher education and the workplace with accessibility as a new norm.

Moderated by Tara Connolly (READ Initiative, Carleton University), panel members include; Quayce Thomas (Carleton alumni and Founder,Timsle.com); Somei Tam (Senior Disability Advisor | Paul Menton Centre (PMC) for Students with Disabilities); Cathy Malcolm Edwards, (Implementation Lead, Coordinated Accessibility Strategy); Rebecca Andre (Carleton University, Fourth year Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies); Beth Robertson (Adjunct Professor Carleton University, Senior Research Associate, Inclusion; Education and Skills; Future Skills | Conference Board of Canada).

Accessibility in Times of Transition took place October 22, 2020.
