UW-Madison hosts multiple events every day, and by policy we are committed to providing equal access for these events.
Event coordinators, presenters, and facilitators play essential roles in providing equal opportunities for all audience members to access and engage with their content.
Keep in mind that disabilities can be apparent or nonapparent, permanent or temporary, disclosed or undisclosed. Whether you’re presenting to a vast group of strangers or giving a project update to a small group of colleagues, it isn’t always possible to know who or how many audience members need accessibility measures, such as captions, image descriptions, strong color contrast, or accessible furniture. Therefore, the most practical approach is to always use good digital and physical accessibility practices when you present.
