MARCH 2023 EDITION OF INSIDE EQUAL ACCESS
Hello, Flashes family! This is Alison. I just got back from California State University at Northridge’s (CSUN) Accessible Technology Convention. What an experience! The conference was attended by close to 1500 disabled users, care givers, and pros from education, technology, business, and engineering industries.
The world of accessibility is expanding at warp speed and I was privileged to see new tech and meet people on the cutting edge of invention and development. Being in a place where people with disabilities are the majority was invigorating.
After speaking at two sessions, attending a dozen plus seminars, and hearing an amazing keynote address, I’m even more excited about advocating for our students and staff with disabilities.
Places that brim with acceptance of disability CAN exist. Thank you for your work, readers, to make Kent State one of those places.
