Checklist to help ensure events are accessible

A checklist developed by the Accessible Customer Service Committee and the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility will help event organizers ensure their meetings or activities are as inclusive as possible.

“The idea is that this checklist can be used when people plan an event, to provide them with ideas on making it accessible to everyone,” says Denice Shuker, accessibility and human rights manager. “We are hoping this will help to support decision-making and raise awareness on how to ensure everyone is included and can fully participate.”

Nominations invited for human rights awards

A new category has been added for the annual awards from the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility will recognize those promoting mental health and helping to remove the stigma associated with mental illness.

The Mental Health Champion Award demonstrates that creating a healthy learning environment is critical to the success of students, says Mohsan Beg, clinical director of the Student Counselling Centre.
