The Carpentries hasn't added a story.
One of our core values at The Carpentries is access for all . This includes creating multiple avenues for participation where all people can learn and contribute. The Accessibility Fund will be used by The Carpentries organisation to support access to all of our events, workshops, and trainings. Through this fund, we aim to never deny an accessibility request due to a lack of money.
Cost estimates for relevant services include:
- Live closed captioning: ~$250/hour
- Remote simultaneous interpretation: $2-4/minute
- Adding language subtitles to video recordings: $3-7/minute
- Childcare in the United States: averages $17/child/hour
- Caregiver services in the United States: averages $27/hour
- Translation of written text: starts at $.10/word
The Accessibility Fund will allow us to provide the above services, and more, to our community members so everyone can participate equally in our programs and activities.
To support access to our biennial conference, CarpentryCon, we are aiming to reach a goal of $5,000. Not reaching this goal does not mean access to these services will not be available at some level, but it will allow us to extend the number of services we can offer and the number of individuals we can support.
