Plain Language Workshop

24 Sep 2020
10:00am - 12:00pm CDT

Join us for an online workshop on developing Plain Language resources that are accessible to those with lower levels of English literacy.  Understand how you can apply plain language principles and clear design to your written documents (from posters to guidebooks), and collaborate with your peers on improving the accessibility of your materials.

This workshop is helpful for staff of the settlement sector (settlement workers, language program coordinators, project coordinators, etc.) who develop written materials for clients, as well as organizations that wish to remove barriers affecting persons with disabilities or low level language skills.

Facilitators: Melissa Germain and Corrina Loewen

Melissa Germain and Corrina Loewen have worked in Manitoba's settlement sector for more than 20 years teaching newcomers, and creating innovative programs and curriculum. They are passionate about plain language and developing resources that are accessible to all Manitobans. Melissa and Corrina are excited to share their expertise with you through interactive training sessions, customized workshops, and consultations.
