Sign up for the Knowbility Newsletter to stay in the know on events, community programs, and accessibility news

Are you a pro with navigating Zoom features? Can you think fast on your feet while keeping track of a few moving parts at once? We could use your help! Once a month, Knowbility hosts A11Y Office Hours, an hour-long training session or discussion on an accessibility-related topic. Last month, the topic was captioning. Our next topic will feature a panel discussion on employment resources for people with disabilities in honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month.

This event always happens on a Tuesday at 1 pm CT. You will need to be present at 12:30 the day of the event, as well as available for a tech check the Monday prior.

If interested, please fill out our Volunteer form or email volunteer@knowbility.org.
