Are you interested in sharing your perspective on how to incorporate a common strategy in social media when it comes to workplace technology products that focus on extending this medium to everyone, including customers, employees, and job seekers with disabilities?
The United States Department of Labor announced recently that its Office of Disability Employment Policy and the National Council on Disability are partnering together and offering an online town hall series to foster dialogue about the importance of technology availability as well as ease-of-use. This virtual medium opened on May 15 and runs until May 30.
Participants involved in dialogue will discuss how universal design of social media can be integrated as usable and accessible technology while avoiding expensive retrofitting and creating a virtual landscape accessible to all users. Feedback will also be requested about technology challenges when it comes to pushing the limits of accessibility as well as input that was received from the first online event in the series that focused on creating unique user-driven solutions for more available social media landscapes and amenities.
If you’re interested in making a difference and contributing your knowledge and expertise, you may register to participate in the town hall here. More information about the Office of Disability Employment Policy’s ePolicyWorks initiative can be found here.
