In addition to its generous sponsorship, Google is demonstrating its commitment to digital inclusion and equity by funding five scholarships for disabled students and early-career professionals to attend the event. Knowbility appreciates Google’s strong support of this hybrid event, which enables people with disabilities to participate on their own terms, whether in-person or virtually, on-demand.
“Tech giants like Google are making serious investments in the digital accessibility of their products,” said Knowbility Executive Director, Sharron Rush. “Google is distinguished, however, in the extent to which they go beyond their own product development to invest in the community. Support for digital inclusion in public schools and in nonprofit initiatives, like AccessU, ensure that accessibility becomes the standard. We are grateful for their partnership.”
AccessU is a training conference that teaches digital accessibility, usability, and inclusive design skills to anyone. Whether participating online or on-site, AccessU fosters learning, exploration, creativity, and connection. By attending, developers, designers, policymakers, business leaders, and others are equipped with knowledge to make digital spaces more accessible to their stakeholders. When technology is accessible, so is opportunity.
