[Note to We Can Do readers: People with disabilities will want to communicate closely with the conference organizers to determine whether they are able to meet your accommodation needs. For example, the informational materials I received about this conference was partly in Word format but also with some separate information in purely visual PDF format (NOT the kind converted from Word but from a JPEG image). People who access electronic materials through a screen reader will want to ensure that they are prepared to provide all information in formats accessible to them. Their conference information does not clarify whether they will be providing sign language interpreters or captioning for deaf participants. Nor does it clarify whether adaptations will be made for people with intellectual disabilities, etc.]
I learned of this conference via the Global Partnership for Disability and Development email discussion group.
