Establishing a talent pipeline of qualified individuals with disabilities is important for federal employers to ensure that they can meet their human capital needs now and in the future. A key component of creating this pipeline is ensuring that your agency’s online systems and content are accessible to your targeted hiring populations. This webinar will take a closer look at the Section 508 standards that govern accessibility of federal information and communications technology (ICT), including what these standards address and why they are important for outreach and recruitment. Guest presenters will review what makes online content accessible to job seekers with disabilities. They will also share practical examples federal agencies can use to ensure recruitment and outreach efforts are accessible for all job seekers with disabilities.
