Leaders in the space from around the world regularly communicate and share ideas and insights. We are a community of Specialists who have dedicated decades to enhancing accessibility and inclusion for all.

We are not out to duplicate the services that our respected colleagues already provide. We are here to fill in the gaps by providing holistic coordination of accessibility inclusion in business.
~Tema Smith-Bosken, CEO

Bosken Inclusion specializes in being generalists. We are not out to duplicate the services that our respected colleagues already provide. We are here to fill in the gaps by providing holistic coordination of Accessibility inclusion in business. What do we mean by that?

Imagine that you know you have a health concern. You have no idea the cause, but you know that not addressing the issue could cause significant risk to you. What would your first instinct be? Would you randomly pick specialists to approach for evaluation, or would you first make an urgent appointment with your Primary Care Physician (PCP) for evaluation and referral? Most people would choose the latter.

After initial consultation it is likely that your PCP would refer you to specialist, for lab work, chest x-rays, etc.. Your doctor would receive reports and help you determine your next steps. Should you consult with a specialist? If so, which one, what type? Could you possibly take control of your own destiny by making changes to your diet and exercise routine? How sick are you? Whatever plan you make, you and your PCP would consult regularly on your progress and work as a team to have you healthy and whole again.

In a nutshell, that is what we do. We act as the Generalist Primary Care Provider for accessibility inclusion in business. When you decide to have an accessibility “check up”, we are here to advise, diagnose, refer and coordinate care with regular “health check” progress reporting.

We chose the name Bosken Inclusion because we are dedicated to providing personalized service for your organization. Just as no two people are the same, no two organizations are the same. Your PCP wouldn’t advise an 80 year old with diabetes to manage their health in the same way they would a 20 something with a broken leg, right.? They certainly would prioritize a potential heart attack over a sprained wrist!

How do you know which accessibility concerns in your organization are the high risk “heart attack” and which are manageable with education and planning?

Of course, if you were to go to a specialist before having an overall evaluation, you will receive excellent care from a dedicated professional. However you may find that you are treating the sprained wrist and the heart attack is about to happen, with neither one of you being aware. Don’t start in the middle! Don’t let risk accumulate because your business has never had a comprehensive health check!

We are available for consultation, evaluation, planning and referrals. Make the first step towards your business being accessible, inclusive and healthy! Our target clientele is small business from 25 to 25,000 employees. Larger organizations are evaluated on a case by case basis.

Grace Bosken
Accessibility SME

Hi, my name is Grace Bosken. I am a SME and accessibility consultant at Bosken Inclusion. As a person with disabilities, and someone who has many connections to people who are also disabled, I have seen so many of my family and friends struggle with things that able-bodied and able-minded people can do with ease when with proper design and implementation, it could be equitable and accessible to everyone. I, along with the entire team of Bosken Inclusion, plan on changing that, because everybody and everybody deserves the right to use the web, just as they deserve the right to do anything else.
