14th Annual Disability Lecture – Innovating Towards a More Inclusive Future

There are places available for the 14th Annual Disability Lecture entitled ‘Innovating Towards a More Inclusive Future’. The lecture will be given by Saqib Shaikh, Microsoft software engineer who is working in the AI and Research group. It will be held at 5.30pm on the 23rd March 2017, in the Fisher Building at St John’s College. The lecture is organised jointly between the University’s Disability Resource Centre (DRC), the Equality and Diversity section and St John’s College.

Saqib will energise and inspire us all about the power of technology to include everyone and in particular how developments for specific groups, like disabled people can lead to mainstream technologies creating more inclusive environments.

The lecture is open to all, the venue is fully accessible to disabled people and the lecture will be captioned and a BSL interpreter will be present. It would be wonderful to include as many people as possible in this event and I attach a poster, which I would be grateful if you would circulate.

Booking is open and is available via – https://innovatingtowardsinclusivefuture.eventbrite.co.uk
