Step 4: Committee Scan

In this step, you will want to do a scan of any previous or existing accessibility committees or similar committees that could be transformed into an accessibility committee. Don’t re-invent the wheel! This could include internal committees related to diversity and inclusion or public committees such as a disability committee or Age-Friendly Committee as examples. It is important to critically consider past interactions between your organization and any potential committees. The Accessible Organizations Project may be an opportunity to rekindle old associations, repair existing relationships, or reach out to underrepresented groups.

During this search, you may want to also identify Accessibility Champions in your sector or in the community that is involved. Accessibility Champions may be able to help guide you along the journey and with recruitment in the future.
