With face-to-face gatherings on pause, how can virtual event and meeting organizers ensure that individuals with access challenges still have a seat at the table? Physical accessibility challenges addressed under the ADA have given way to greater focus on how individuals experiencing sight, hearing, and other challenges can more fully attend and participate in virtual events. Understanding, addressing, and planning around these hurdles helps organizers avoid legal liability for non-compliance, enhance reputations for best practices, gain positive PR sentiment, and most importantly, create an atmosphere of inclusivity and productivity at events and meetings.
