Event Accessibility 101

March 23 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Event Accessibility 101
Are your virtual & in-person events including those with disabilities?

If your business isn’t accessible, you’re missing out on 1/4 of the U.S. population (with $490 billion to spend. Woof — that’s alotta dough).

My guess is you’d rather have that money in your pocket. And, I’m also guessing that you’re a good human and you want to work with other good humans. Sounds right?

The good news is there are easy changes you can implement as soon as you walk away from this workshop!

Accessibility isn’t just about your website or the physical realm. It’s about ensuring your guests have an awesome experience throughout the entire journey – from sign up to attending the event to post event nurture.

Do you struggle with…

  • Uncertainty about what accommodations you need to provide for people with disabilities?
  • Understanding what user experience is for guests with disabilities?
  • Worrying you need to start from scratch in order to be accessible?

This workshop is for you if …

  • You’re ready to take action on being accessible in your business.
  • You want to understand the easy things you can do to provide for people with disabilities.
  • You’re ready to take a few steps to make your next event accessible!

The better you can serve your community, the bigger your business can grow.

You’ll learn what’s needed to get started, including…

  • How to create an accessible event for as many people as possible.
  • How to have a successful, accessible in-person and virtual event — and communicate that with your attendees.
  • Space for you to ask all the questions you may have about accessibility — without judgment.

“I regularly watch videos with the captions on, but had never considered the positive impact that tools like closed captioning, transcripts, and image descriptions provide for an entire demographic! It’s something that I had considered adding to my podcast, but wasn’t sure if it was too much. I definitely will, now. Thank you for this!” – Jasmine, Profitable Podcast Summit Attendee

Workshop. 30-40 minutes

“Erin Perkins was a teacher for a two-hour training on accessibility and wow, did she exceed all expectations! As the facilitator for the training, I was incredibly impressed by Erin’s professionalism, communication, and depth of knowledge — not to mention good humor and generosity of spirit. I highly recommend her work and can’t wait to partner with her and Mabely Q again.” — Elizabeth Kramer, Founder of Altared
