Postsecondary institutions draw attention to Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Several postsecondary institutions are drawing attention to Global Accessibility Awareness Day to work toward more inclusive environments for people with disabilities. Brock University is hosting a digital accessibility workshop where community members can learn more about creating and participating in inclusive digital environments. Centennial College is running the “I am ME” campaign to educate the college community about disability identity and hosting a panel that discusses the challenges and successes experienced in the workplace by people with disabilities. Sarah Rahimi (Concordia University) has penned an article for The Conversation discussing how employers can learn from universities when it comes to supporting students and new graduates with dyslexia as they transition from postsecondary institutions into the workplace.
