Ever wonder what accessibility has to do with DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion)?
From May 24-26th, 2022, the University of Guelph will be holding its annual Accessibility Conference, which will be delivered virtually via Zoom. This three-day event will allow you to gain insight into the relationship between accessibility and inclusion, equity and diversity.
