Inclusive Design Policy for CMHR

Client: Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Project Description

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) wished to codify their considerable commitment to inclusive design in an inclusive design policy, which would be integrated into the museum's governance structure. This way, the museum's commitment was not dependent on the support of current staff, as this policy will outlast any one employee.

PAC was delighted to help craft and author this inclusive design policy, which not only covered website accessibility by incorporating WCAG 2.0 levels A and AA, but also extended these requirements to other digital interfaces throughout the museum, such as exhibitions. At CMHR, inclusive design and accessibility are baked into the design, realized through the commitment of dedicated and hardworking staff, and woven into the institution's fabric through this new policy.

  • Screenshot of a webpage with a teal blue bar on top announcing "Mandela: Struggle for Freedom extended until late summer 2019." Below that are two rows of navigational items. The majority of the image is a photo of an older woman looking off towards the left and large text that reads, "This is such a momentous occasion . . . My sister, a woman, a Black woman, is on the $10 bill."
