Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Update: Call for submissions

The Equity and Inclusion Office and the McMaster Accessibility Council invite you to submit a 150-word description of new or ongoing accessibility and disability inclusion work either personally or as part of your unit to this year’s Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Update 2019-2020.

Recognizing that 2020 has presented unprecedented challenges, impacting individuals and communities in many different ways, we have delayed and streamlined our application process this year for submissions and publication of the Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Update 2019-2020.

Please find revised timelines for submission and publication detailed below:

End of January – beginning February, 2021

You may submit more than one submission / person and unit; if your submission exceeds 150 words, please consider breaking into multiple submissions.

Some additional information to consider in making your submission simple:
