Community meeting/workshop schedule

Excerpt

Every On Wednesday at 2:30 PM ET, folks from the IDRC, Fluid community, and others get the inclusive design community gathers together to learn and chat about some introductory topics as a form of knowledge sharing. Users who are remote typically join via Vidyo.discussion various topics. The community workshops provide the inclusive design community an opportunity for engaging with a broader community to spur our creative processes with topics that may align with our projects, be lateral with, or challenge our ideas by providing alternative perspectives. It also provides the opportunity to make connections with the work of those in the broader community.
