Tips for making online meetings more accessibleWhilst we can acknowledge that the move to online meetings have been beneficial for groups to access and deliver services to a wider audience, it has proved a barrier to those with a disability, or otherwise digitally excluded.
In alignment with Race Equality Matters #MyNameIs campaign, Community Southwark has implemented adding the phonetic spelling of our names into email signatures. The campaign promotes inclusivity by highlighting individuality. Names represent who we are and where we have come from. Pronouncing other people’s names correctly does matter. Especially if you value dignity, respect and inclusion.
For example: Zuwena Blagrove (Zoo-WEH-na BLAY-grove)
