Live 90-minute webinar

Your organization’s website is often the first place people go for information about your museum, your exhibitions, your programs, and your collection. But who are the people who use your website, and is your website inclusive of the broadest audience? 20% of Americans identify as having a disability—can they, and everyone, access all of the information that your website shares? Is your website designed by IT in a silo, or have critical stakeholders been included in the process–from top to bottom and across your organization (and beyond)? Have you addressed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or embraced Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and principles of Universal Design in your choices of font, colors, graphics, functionality, tagging, and use of assistive technology?
