Watch On Demand


On-demand virtual event



Inclusive communication considers word choice, formatting, image selection, and the accessibility of your content to all audiences. The term “accessibility” is commonly misunderstood or defined so broadly that it can be difficult for some people to make improvements.

Join Associate Director Racquel Jemison of the Office of DEIR at ACS as she defines accessibility in three contexts: the use of plain language, compatibility with assistive technologies, and design and formatting. Register now to discover how to incorporate accessibility in your writing or communication projects as well as a range of easy-to-apply activities for many forms of communication ranging from peer-reviewed technical papers to social media posts.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Victoria Fuentes of the American Chemical Society and is co-produced with the ACS Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Respect (DEIR).
