Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Authentic Inclusion in the Workplace

In the past, we’ve discussed My Blind Spot, an organization that specializes in accessibility testing and champions possibilities for people with disabilities. In the most recent AccessAbility Works podcast, the hosts speak with Lori Samuels, Accessibility Director at NBC Universal Media. The conversation begins with a recounting of the work Albert and Lori did to champion accessibility at software company Intuit, and progresses to a discussion of how to make the needs of employees and customers with disabilities more salient in discussions of corporate strategy and diversity and inclusion. The three discuss the progress that has been made in overcoming both physical and digital barriers to access and offer strategies for championing authentic inclusion in employment, entertainment, and overall life and look forward to a more accessible future.
