Effordability Summit

Disabled people are the largest historically underrepresented group, numbering over one billion worldwide. Reaching a group of this scale creates value for everyone. Organizations that prioritize accessibility benefit by gaining access to a much larger audience, improving the experience for both disabled and nondisabled people, and facilitating further innovation.

As part of the 2024 Effordability Summit at UW–Stout, Haben Girma will deliver an engaging keynote presentation on making our communities more accessible. To attend the keynote in person or via livestream, please register for the Summit. Registration for the Summit, including the keynote, is free and open to the public.
