2021 Digital Accessibility Guide

Resource Provided By Vantage Point

As the Vantage Point team explores more accessible ways of distributing our media, we want to make our research available to other not-for-profits as well.

This guide is based on an internal Accessibility Guide created by Vantage Point staff members and establishes some basic principles in Universal Design, wherein designing content or experiences starts with everyone in mind from the beginning of each design process. It goes on to outline step-by-step practices to make digital media accessible to people of varying disabilities.

Whether working in common Microsoft 365 programs like Word and PowerPoint, online marketing software like Mailchimp, or wanting an introduction to Adobe Acrobat’s accessibility functions, this is a well-rounded starting point.

Goleman’s Leadership Styles

Resource Provided By Vantage Point

“What are the six styles of leadership? None will shock workplace veterans.

Indeed, each style, by name and brief description alone, will likely resonate with anyone who leads, is led, or as is the case with most of us, does both.

Coercive leaders demand immediate compliance. Authoritative leaders mobilize people toward a vision. Affiliative leaders create emotional bonds and harmony. Democratic leaders build concensus through participation. Pacesetting leaders expect excellence and self-direction. And coaching leaders develop people for the future.”

– Daniel Goleman
