Whose responsibility is it anyway? Creating an accessibility education program for employees

From procurement to deployment, accessibility has often been seen as someone in IT or communication’s wheelhouse. Without proper decentralization, no organization will successfully overcome ingrained processes which impede full accessibility compliance.

Enter the employee accessibility education program! Having an easy-to-access accessibility wiki has enabled me to slowly decentralize accessibility from one person’s job to many. Accessibility is truly part of everyone’s job (they just don’t know it yet). From support staff to professors, everyone has a role to play to make their content inclusive. I’ll share what’s worked (and what hasn’t) and how to get started to create your education plan.
