At InterExchange, we hold DEIA close to our hearts—Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility. These principles drive our mission, offering people from diverse backgrounds incredible opportunities to connect during our programs.But what exactly is Accessibility? It’s about ensuring that everyone, irrespective of their abilities or differences, can effortlessly access and use things like websites, buildings, experiences, or technology. Picture ramps and elevators for wheelchair users or subtitles on videos for the Deaf or hard of hearing. It’s all about creating a world where everyone feels included, where unnecessary barriers simply don’t exist.
