Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Webinar Series: ADA 2020 Online
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, Great Plains ADA Center, ADA National Network

Description:

Join this 90 minute session to learn best practices for purchasing accessible technology! A key aspect of any accessible technology initiative is procurement: Making sure that all web-based products that are purchased (including websites, mobile apps, kiosks, workplace software, and more) can be used by people with disabilities.

In this session, you will learn about accessible purchasing guidelines created by the University of California and understand how to implement them at your institution. These guidelines are adaptable for both public and private sector. If your organization buys technology, and you want that tech to be accessible, this session is for you. The session will share specific documents from UC Berkeley’s accessible procurement program. We will cover both the contents and the process used in creating these documents, share lessons learned from early use, and plans for future expansion. By attending this presentation, you will have the information you need to start your own accessible purchasing initiative.

This webinar in the ADA Online 2020 Series represents a session that was originally slated to be presented at the 2020 National ADA Symposium in May 2020. Due to the pandemic, the Symposium was cancelled, but we know how important the learning that occurs at this event is for many. The sessions that were selected for this webinar series represent many of the most popular in terms of content and speaker(s) and to ensure that those who are pursuing the ADA Coordinator Training Certification Program (ACTCP) are able to obtain their core credits.
