Enabling Access to Persons With Disability

Thanks to Diana Joseph, Director at Fourth Wave Foundation, I had the opportunity to attend the Conference on “Enabling Access for Persons with Disabilities to Higher Education and Workplace- Role of ICT and Assistive Technologies” held at IIM Bangalore in January 2012.

This conference was an honest endeavor towards and itself an example of inclusive participation. It was indeed a great learning experience for me and left me with many questions, the answers to which I am trying to find in the daily narratives that surround me. I shall post about it in my upcoming blog on Education and Storytelling.

I am posting the link to their journal, I also had the opportunity to make a tiny contribution to the same.
