Join two disabled library workers in a discussion of how to make libraries accessible for both professionals and patrons. Learn how disability accommodations for workers can affect your library, how to reduce stigma in the workplace, and how universal access can make your library a more welcoming place to disabled people on both sides of the service desk. Possibilities for several mental and physical disabilities will be covered, including autism, mental illness, use of mobility devices, and assistive technology. Join us for a lively discussion and learn how you can take the lead to combat ableism and smash that wall! Sponsored/presented by DORT.
