Accessible Communications

All businesses thrive on effective communication. A vital part of effective communication is accessibility. Accessibility ensures equitable access to critical information for all members of your workforce including people experiencing disabilities.

Delivering accessible communication increases your organization’s ability to:

  • attract a wider network of clients and talented workers,
  • increase efficiency and worker engagement, and
  • minimize errors related to miscommunication.


This course provides an overview of accessibility and universal design principles that can help you optimize your business communications for greater effectiveness and inclusivity.  

This brief course outlines: 

  • why employers need to plan for accessibility, 
  • how universal design (UD) can shape your thinking and approach, and 
  • how to create positive change through simple strategies and tips.
