How to Create More Accessibly Inclusive Spaces

November 26, 2019

Accessibility continues to evolve to include non-physical spaces such as education, curriculum, governance and employment, and is increasingly being applied to a larger spectrum of individuals.

This discussion seeks to explore the cross-sectional culture of accessibility with a panel of guests who provide unique perspectives from personal, lived experiences.

Facilitated by:

Dr. Alissa Overend

Dr. Alissa Overend is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and the coordinator for the gender studies minor. Alissa teaches and researches in the areas of critical health and food studies as well as intersectional inequality.
