The AIM Lab community extends far beyond the walls of our physical location, and we strive to cultivate a genuine image that is unique and cohesive both on and offline. This protocol provides an in-depth description of the purpose and personality of the AIM Lab’s digital presence. Developed over time through careful consideration and team collaboration, the goal of the communication protocol is to provide a guide to our digital presence as it aligns with the Values and Principles outlined in our manifesto. This is a living document that evolves with the shifting presence and goals of the lab.

In this protocol, AIM Lab provides a detailed “how-to” for how to organize accessible events. As stated in our Manifesto, our understand of access is broad, multidimensional and intersectional. We have come up with this document through systemic research, individual reflections and collective conversations around our past experiences in various events. Our hope is that future events organizers (both within and outside of the university) will use this document and work towards making their events accessible.
