The Future of Accessible Work

Inclusive Innovations is your opportunity to connect with accessibility advocates, technology disruptors, and employees around the future of accessible work.

Creating Workplace Accessibility and Happiness

In partnership with the San Francisco LightHouse for the Blind, Inclusive Innovations is an all-new event created to focus attention and understanding on the future of workplace accessibility for employees who are blind or who have low vision.

Representatives from across industry, technology, and employees who are blind and who have low vision, come together to discuss ideas and share insights on the latest technology trends, new workplace practices, and the role of Inclusive Innovation in shaping the future of workplace accessibility, inclusivity, and happiness.

Guests will also be able to meet innovators and try out the next generation of assistive technologies firsthand.
