Welcome to Springboard’s Accessible Meeting & Event Toolkit for planning an accessible and inclusive in-person, virtual, or hybrid meeting or event.

At Springboard, we understand that planning fully accessible meetings and events might seem overwhelming, but with proper planning can become second nature. An effective approach begins with raising awareness of the barriers that limit or preclude the full participation of individuals with disabilities. Although some accommodations may appear unreasonable, most can be made without incurring great expense, compromising the nature of the activity, or raising safety concerns.

It is helpful to begin by having a general understanding of the various types of disabilities, including mobility, sensory, cognitive, learning, developmental, and psychiatric.

This toolkit is intended to assist organizations in planning meetings and events that are inclusive and accessible for individuals with disabilities. While it is impossible to anticipate every barrier that might limit or preclude event participation for someone with a disability, the enclosed best practices will serve you well to eliminate most.

This toolkit should be viewed as a living document that will evolve as new innovations and technologies emerge and as your own experience grows.

We hope you find this toolkit helpful and thought provoking.
