Join us for an online workshop on developing plain language resources that can be valuable for a wide range of contexts. 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
