Guide to Planning Inclusive Meetings

This pdf guide is to help organize meetings that are inclusive. An area often overlooked by meeting planners, or dismissed as too difficult, is how to make a meeting accessible for people with disabilities. By considering accessibility as part of the planning process, you ensure that everyone can participate and be involved, which means a successful meeting. The guide includes a useful checklist, resources, and a glossary.

This document provides several helpful suggestions and action items necessary to plan an inclusive meeting. However, I found the document long and wordy. Additionally, it would have been helpful to suggest alternatives as some of the action items seemed difficult to implement quickly. The link on the Access-ed website did not link directly to the document, which made the resource difficult to find.

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace.
