Accessibility & Wellness Series
In an effort to respond to the needs expressed by Carleton staff and faculty, Healthy Workplace and the READ Initiative are collaborating to offer a series on Accessibility and Wellness. The intended outcomes of the Accessibility & Wellness Series are to:
- Increase awareness within members of the Carleton community about accessibility issues and how they relate and contribute to wellness of individuals and the community as a whole;
- Encourage awareness into action approach through the provision of concrete strategies, resources and connections for participants;
- Highlight the connection between accessibility and accessible practices and the wellness of individuals;
- Increase the conversations about accessibility.
In addition to these outcomes, this speaker series helps promote the goals outlined in Carleton’s new Strategic Integrated Plan, as well as supports the goals of Carleton’s Coordinated Accessibility Strategy, by adding to the events that increase awareness and foster a culture of accessibility at Carleton University.
