Transitions in Accessibility

October 22, 2020 at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM


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.

As part of the 2nd Annual Inclusion Week hosted by Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC) Department at Carleton University, the Paul Menton Centre and the READ Initiative will host a panel discussion to highlight the leadership initiatives being undertaken by its students, faculty, staff and alumni to advance the accessibility agenda on campus and in the greater community.

This discussion will examine 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.

Following the panel presentations, there will be a 15 minute curated Q&A session.
