Accessibility

Pal(a)eo PERCS is committed to producing an accessible virtual seminar series. Some of our efforts include live-captioning of talks using auto-captions, seminar recordings available to attendees for later viewing, and encouraging our speakers to use colorblind-friendly graphics. However, we recognize that these efforts are not exhaustive, and that accessibility is a continual work in progress. We are a grassroots, international, institution-independent coalition of early career researchers with no budget (yet), but would like to do right by our community members. If there is an accommodation that would improve your ability to participate in this seminar series, please reach out to us at paleopercs@gmail.com and we will work with you. Thank you!
