Information for Mentors, Mentees, and Mentorship Programs

We know the right things to do. Things like:

  • Eat your vegetables.
  • Get some exercise.
  • Make your digital content accessible for everyone.

Turning these thoughts into action, and eventually habits, can be hard.

Mentorship is one way to move a good idea into a daily practice.

There is a lot of technical learning that comes along with digital accessibility. It’s the whole routine of plan, do, test. But what about:

  • Having tough conversations? Example: Advocating for accessibility with a group when it may impact their current project timelines and budget.
  • When you can’t find information on a specific topic?
  • When you need advice on your next set of learning goals?
