Making My Workplace More Accessible
Requesting an Accommodation for Me
Employees who believe they will need a reasonable accommodation to perform their essential job functions should contact IDEAA to start an interactive process tailored to match the needs of the individual.
Implementing Accommodations for My Team
Employers are required to provide appropriate changes and adjustments to enable applicants and employees to be considered for a job opening or to perform the essential functions of a position.
Building Disability Community
The Disability Cultural Initiative is working to launch a Disability Employee Resource Group (ERG) to provide employees with opportunities for networking and community-building.
Making My Website More Accessible
Web accessibility means that all content on your website should be consumable by every visitor, regardless of ability. Many website visitors use assistive technologies like screen readers, magnifiers and Braille terminals to browse web content.
Social Media Accessibility
Content you post to social media needs to meet the same accessibility requirements as any other website content.
Accessible Emails and Newsletters
Emails are another kind of electronic document that need to meet accessibility standards and work with assistive technologies, particularly when you don’t know the needs of the people receiving your emails.
Georgetown University has a rich tradition of embracing people from a wide spectrum of faiths, ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds. The university considers acts of hate, bias and discrimination unacceptable and antithetical to its commitment to an inclusive and respectful community.
