Accessibility Compliance 101
May 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - May 23, 2019 @ 11:00 am EDT
The Accessibility Compliance 101 Webinar Series has been designed with the recognition that you have limited time and need the most up-to-date information. These 1-hour webinars are an ideal way for busy leaders to engage in an interactive online experience from the convenience of their own desk.
This series of three webinars has been specially designed for staff who are responsible for their organization’s AODA implementation and compliance. We will review the legislation, discuss in detail your legal requirements, provide you with a multitude of resources, and share best practices for ensuring your organization’s successful compliance. There will be time during each webinar to ask the presenting AODA expert questions about how the legislation affects your particular organization.
100% of past webinar participants said that their understanding of the AODA and their compliance obligations improved as a result of this webinar series.
Who: Management Team Staff, including Executive Directors/CEOs, Directors & Managers (HR, Communications, Policy Development, and Volunteer Coordinators).
Why: Organizations of all sizes (1+ employees) and types (nonprofit, businesses, and public sector) must be compliant with the AODA requirements, including policy development and training of all staff.
“The webinar series highlighted the most relevant information in an easy to understand format and provided great examples to further enhance understanding.”
When: Every Thursday, for 3 weeks, from 10:00 am-11:00 am
Where: Online webinar via your computer
