Accessibility in the Laboratory

12:00 P.M. to 1:00 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability at Cornell University

Description:

Access to STEM education and careers can be challenging for people with disabilities. Given the importance of creating a pipeline of qualified candidates with disabilities for careers in science and technology, the Northeast ADA Center would like to share critical information about access in laboratory environments. This introduction will provide an overview of the legal requirements to provide access in laboratory environments in post-secondary education. Scenarios will be presented to explore physical access in the lab, how to safely include service animals, and how to make accommodations for student scientists who are blind or have low vision or are deaf or hard of hearing. This webinar will be based on information in the Accessibility in the Laboratory Book published (2018) by the American Chemical Society.
