Centering Accessibility in Hennepin County

July 25, 2023
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

Join the Digital Service Network (DSN) for a webinar to learn more about how Hennepin County (MN) is centering accessibility in their work.

In January 2022, Hennepin County (MN) adopted its first digital accessibility policy. The policy mandates that all of the County’s digital products — new and existing, employee- and public-facing — comply with specific accessibility standards. 

The policy reflects Hennepin County’s commitment to serve all residents and builds on a longstanding, staff-driven focus on digital accessibility. To implement the policy, the Office of Digital Experience (ODX) is building a suite of trainings and resources that will equip staff with the tools they need to prioritize and improve digital accessibility across County services.

Join us as we hear from ODX’s Megan Evans Seeds, chief digital officer, and Lisa Yang, digital accessibility coordinator, as they share their efforts to help center digital accessibility across Hennepin County government. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions!

The DSN recently highlighted this work in our DSN Spotlight Series. Ahead of the webinar, read the spotlight and explore the artifacts driving this work.
