    Episode 148- Importance of Accessible and Inclusive Communications

    Episode 148- Importance of Accessible and Inclusive Communications

    In this episode, we will explore why inclusive and accessible communication is not just a goal but a transformative journey. 
    We are often immersed in the tangible aspects of our work, from project to project and client to client; the critical elements of ensuring our communication is truly accessible and inclusive can unintentionally take a backseat. This podcast serves as a deliberate pause—an intentional effort to bring these vital considerations to the forefront, encouraging us to make inclusivity an ingrained part of our daily communication practices. 
    We are joined by two inspiring guests making strides towards inclusive communications: Sacha Jackman⁠, Account Manager at Vision2Voice, and ⁠Sajandeep Johal⁠, Accessibility Tester at Indigenous Services Canada.
