Webinars

Our highly informative webinars support you to learn about access and inclusion from the comfort of your own desk. 

Upcoming webinar: Why is communication accessibility so important?

One in seven of us will experience communication difficulties in our lifetime, and currently 1.2 million Australians are living with communication disability. People with a communication disability might find it hard to use speech or understand written information.

We’re honoured to have Scope Communication and Victoria Police lead a free, exclusive webinar for our members, to discuss: 

  • Leading best practice examples organisations can follow to be communication accessible.
  • Why communication access is an essential component of your business.
  • How to get started with making your customer touchpoints communication accessible.
  • The Communication Access Symbol and associated best practice standards.

During the webinar, Scope Communication will present a case study with Victoria Police. Please watch the video ‘Communication Access at Victoria Police’ before the webinar.
