Description

Join us in exploring innovative tech inclusion

for people with visible and invisible disabilities.


Come network, share best practices, co-create solutions, and change the tech industry together! The Ability in Tech Summit is a full-day, solutions-focused event with Solo Talks, Panel Discussions, Workshops, Career Fair, Technology Showcase, Networking and a Social Hour.

You'll meet engineers, human resource officers, employee resource groups, investors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, professors, media and other changemakers.

Full agenda available at the Ability in Tech website.

Why attend?

Mental and physical disabilities cross all genders, races, ethnicities, ages, geographies and socioeconomics. But when we talk about diversity and inclusion in tech, we often leave out those with different abilities. Yet people with disabilities in tech are more common than we may think - and it often doesn't take much to better include them in our conversations, workplaces and communities.

We've created this event for everyone attending to feel safe to explore these intersectionalities, to develop pathways for change, to understand the unique capabilities people with disabilities can and do provide to engineering, marketing and leadership teams.

Don't worry if you know nothing about it - let's change that! Come explore new technologies, listen to personal stories, learn the "dos" and "don'ts", have great conversations, discover new talent, broaden your network and find new perspectives.

Hosts

The Ability in Tech Summit is a collaboration between Computer Technologies Program and Tech Inclusion.
