WMCC December Pocket Program

Topic: Website Accessibility for Governments and Non-profits

Making your website accessible can feel like an overwhelming task. You might not know where to start or how to pay for it. Former web accessibility professional for the State of Minnesota, Lynn Wehrman, will join us from the Minneapolis based WeCo. WeCo provides accessibility testing services from a talented team of individuals living with a wide variety of disabilities. Lynn is here to help governments and nonprofits begin to tackle this challenge.

During her talk she will be covering:

• Why website accessibility is vital to nonprofits in delivering services 

• The true impact in how people with disabilities use your website 

• Quick and simple things you can start with now 

• Living examples of what works and what doesn’t 

• Free and low-cost resources for nonprofits

Lynn Wehrman / Founder and President of WeCo Accessibility Services
