Local Event

When it comes to learning, everyone matters. Everyone should be able to access and benefit from learning but often it is difficult for L&D programs to ensure this is true for everyone. How accessible is your learning, really?


This interactive event will use a panel of experts who will share their strategies to upskill L&D professionals around accessibility (universal design), diversity (neurodiversity), and inclusion (indigenous inclusion). You will have the opportunity to engage with these experts to build your skills in ensuring every one of your learners matters.

You will learn strategies in applying accessibility, diversity, and inclusion within their learning programs.


Each presenter will provide the following takeaways to all registered participants after the session:

  • top resources to support including accessibility, diversity, and inclusion in their learning programs (eg articles, infographics, podcasts, tools, websites, organisations)
  • top people to follow for continued learning in accessibility, diversity, and inclusion.
