Accessible Communications Training

“The accessibility of a brand’s communications impacts my actions and attitudes towards the brand, specifically whether or not I’m willing to purchase from that brand.”

Sena Pottackal – Current Global

What the training covers

Current Global’s hands-on accessible communications training is designed for PR and communications professionals looking to upskill themselves and their teams to be better equipped to deliver disability inclusive and accessible communications. We partnered with a learning and development specialist and consulted with partners and clients to develop this course.

As a valuable and customizable consulting offer, Current Global can tailor exercises and examples to ensure relevancy to specific clients and industries. Led by two of our accessibility champions, the training is hosted remotely via Teams and can support 10-15 attendees per workshop.

Why invest in accessible communications training?

Often, communicators launch campaigns and publish content that is not designed to be inclusive of people with sight, hearing, cognitive, and speech disabilities. Our training teaches participants about the importance of disability inclusion and how to create inclusive content and campaigns.

I’ve seen a shift in the way communications embraces the disabled community…I feel like they’re telling us that they see us, that they recognize our value and they want to include us…
