Voluntary Information

We encourage Community members to share the following information, which will assist us in building the Access to Design Community.

The Access to Design Community is very broad. It is open to designers, students, career seekers, and people with disabilities, counselors, families, educators, potential employers, service providers, and others who are interested in supporting people with disabilities in the design professions. We are in the process of reorganizing the website to support and foster a sense of community and to provide a wider choice of options for engaging in Access to Design Professions programs.

Current resources and programs include: Careers in Design Web Resources, International Network of Designers with Disabilities, Access to Design E-Mentoring Program, and the Access to Design E-Forum where Community members can exchange ideas and advice [under construction].
