Organising an event?  What do you need to know about making an event that welcomes everybody?

The Australian Digital Inclusion Alliance (ADIA) offer a checklist to help you be sure you’ve covered all the bases regarding accessible infrastructure,  language, catering and tech.

ADIA say, “Meetings and events are critical for presentation, consultation, sharing information, gaining insights and feedback, and mediation.  This checklist provides a simple way to ensure everybody can attend and participate in your event or meeting, irrespective of how formal or informal.

… The best way to ensure you are catering for audience needs is to ask them and consider many alternatives to cater for different needs. And remember the best method of preparation is to run through the event proceedings first with colleagues.”

The checklist was developed by the Centre for Inclusive Design.
