Science and Technology

Among the Changemakers of Science and Technology are disabled people with accomplished academic careers, entrepreneurial energy and expertise in creating new avenues for accessibility and user-centered design.

Often because of necessity, and because of our less than accessible environment, many people with disabilities become creative and ingenious problem-solvers. They frequently have to improvise solutions to practical and technical problems that make for skilled collaborators and strategic thinkers.
