2019 Tapia Conference

Navigating Tech with a Disability

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 3:00PM - 4:00PM

Having a disability in tech makes for a different set of challenges in computing classes, community participation, careers, and more. This session will provide an opportunity for disabled people in tech to discuss disability disclosure, ableism, accessibility, accommodations, and other aspects of having a disability in tech, whether that be in academia, the workplace, or online. The organizers will pose a series of questions to participants and facilitate informal discussion about having a disability in tech. A variety of perspectives, backgrounds, and disability representation are welcome.
