This page is under construction. Please check back as I add more resources on digital accessibility and language inclusivity for communicators and designers.
I've created a playlist on Spotify that features podcast episodes related to access. I find it helpful to ground my practices and thinking within frameworks that are of and for disabled communities. So, this playlist includes a variety of conversations about frameworks such as Disability Justice, as well as practical approaches to accessibility in design, event planning, and online spaces. I intend to update and expand the playlist regularly, so please follow it on Spotify if you find it useful.
