About the CBI

The Washington State IT Accessibility CBI provided a forum for Washington State postsecondary schools to share strategies, successes, and challenges related to their IT accessibility efforts, and to explore specific areas of effort and identify needs and opportunities for statewide collaboration. The overall objective of the event was to increase the capacity of participating institutions to provide an IT environment that is accessible to students, employees, and visitors with disabilities. 

The CBI included presentations as well as large and small group discussions. Participants from multiple institutions shared promising practices and successful endeavors in accessible IT. In small working groups, participants discussed efforts, challenges, opportunities, and next steps for collaboration. In this CBI

  • all attendees contributed to its success,
  • participants shared diverse perspectives, experiences, and expertise, and
  • new ideas evolved from discussions.
