Inclusive Innovations:

The Future of Accessible Work

Inclusive Innovations, hosted by Envision and the San Francisco LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, brought together accessibility advocates, assistive technology innovators, and employees to discuss workplace accessibility.

What is InIn?

Inclusive Innovations combined presentations and tech demos with informal networking. The event which was held in person and online, highlighted the changing mindset of forward-thinking organizations towards hiring for diversity, and the critical role disruptive technologies and blind and low vision trailblazers play in increasing workplace productivity and happiness.
