This week, 30 May to 5 June 2021, we celebrated National AccessAbility Week!
National AccessAbility Week is an opportunity to celebrate:
- the valuable contributions of Canadians with disabilities;
- the accomplishments of individuals, communities and workplaces that are actively working to remove barriers to accessibility and inclusion; and
- the ongoing work we all have to do to counter discrimination against persons with disabilities and promote a culture of inclusion.
As specialists in the areas of inclusion, accessibility and wellness, Human Space explores thoughtful and innovative solutions that promote equity, wellbeing and participation in the built environment.
On 2 June 2021, our Accessibility and Wellness Lead Lorene Casiez facilitated a workshop with York Region as a part of National Accessibility Week, with a focus on the Accessibility Advisory Committee’s (AAC’s) Sphere of Influence. The various AAC’s are comprised of individuals who are passionate and knowledgeable about ways to make the built environment more inclusive for everyone. The time together was a great way to exchange ideas and further develop ways in which each AAC member can further enhance their ability to impact change in their respective committees.
Human Space continues to find innovative ways to break existing barriers to accessibility to become inclusive by design. Our global collaborative of experts and specialists offer services to create spaces for all that include Consulting, Inclusive Design, Building Audits & Feasibility, Guidelines & Standards, Facilitation & Engagement, Certification & Benchmarking, Research, and Training.
