In this webinar, Erin J. Hoppe, executive director of VSA Ohio, will lead an overview of disability awareness and share 10 free and simple ideas to improve accessibility in spaces, programs, marketing, operations, and governance.

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about accessible accommodations? If you’re like most people, you likely picture wheelchair ramps, ASL interpretation, or a host of services that seem daunting and expensive. 

Erin J. Hoppe, executive director of VSA Ohio, will lead an overview of disability awareness and share 10 free and simple ideas to improve accessibility in spaces, programs, marketing, operations, and governance. Accessibility isn’t a checkbox—it’s the right thing to do, and will increase your organization and program participation.
