Digital Accessibility Committee

The Digital Accessibility Committee (DAC) aims to champion accessibility practices in digital spaces, particularly webpages, events, and publications, around Berkeley Lab. The DAC evolved out of the Inclusive Meetings Initiative, which made numerous strides towards establishing best practices for hearing-impaired individuals in the era of remote work.
