Digital Accessibility Awareness and Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion

Digital Accessibility Awareness


UCSF’s IT department is sponsoring a free Digital Accessibility demonstration to celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day. 

Too much of our digital environment, here at UCSF, fall short of accessibility for all. A few simple steps, implemented early, can change this. Experience how a blind user “reads” visual digital content. Marc Sutton will demonstrate using a screen reader and share what makes a good user experience and what are barriers. 

Presenter: Marc Sutton


Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion


This Office of Diversity and Outreach training series will strengthen your understanding around foundations of diversity. We will review concepts of bias and micro aggressions, and present Cultural Humility as a framework to support equity and inclusion. 

Bring your lunch and learn! After the presentation there will be time for Q&A.

Presenter: Don Woodson
