Review slides

Beyond the technical work of identifying the specific standards and making sure we are meeting them, those of us with a need to promote accessible universities need to be able to handle the adaptive, soft skills challenges as well. How do we convince people to take on accessibility as a core value? How do we train them in both the technical skills and the mindset that sees accessibility as critical to the entire university experience?
