Laurie Necasek: How can we improve our accessibility for college students?

Our next guest is Laurie Necasek. Laurie is an Accessibility Expert and Instructional Designer who provides a holistic approach to digital accessibility. In accordance with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), she can help you create content that is inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities. She bridges the gap between people with disabilities who are accessing online content and digital content creators who are trying to reach their intended audience. By working together to create content with accessibility in mind, creators can reach a wider audience and spread their message further than ever.

In episode 332 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Laurie chose the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, what is alternative text and how does it provide equal access, how alternative text can help you boost your fraternity or sorority website in the search engines, how to provide equal access and ensure your flyers and physical advertisements reach a wide audience on campus, an example of creating alternative text for a photo that we post on Instagram, how we improve the hashtags we are using on social media, how we can improve our physical access to our spaces for events from an accessibility standpoint, and how we rethink all of these processes within student organizations with greater accessibility in mind.
