Grey Matters is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodation in our event, An Evening with Neuroscience. This year, we have taken additional steps to ensure that EWN remains as accessible as possible in both an in person and virtual format.

With our in-person EWN events, CART captioning services have been requested for EWN 2022. We have also requested ASL interpreters and will make sure audio is clear at the event with test rounds prior to the beginning of the event. We are also providing seating navigation guides and ensuring wheelchair accessible aisles in the auditorium. We have also made a transportation guide in terms of transportation methods, directions to the event, and parking instructions.

As with our in-person EWN events, CART captioning services have been requested. We plan on ensuring audio and captioning is clear at the event by doing a test round prior to each livestream.

We will be providing links to any materials used in the event in advance, as well as step-by-step guides on how to access and navigate the platforms we will be using. We have included image descriptions in our materials, and plan on including them in the livestreams themselves. Videos of each livestream with closed captions will be available on the Grey Matters Journal YouTube channel after the event.

If you have any additional questions or would like to request additional accommodations, please reach out to Lizzy at thalamus@uw.edu with subject line “EWN Access,” or fill out an anonymous form here.
