Bernard Chiira, Director of Innovate Now recently spoke at RightsCon 2022 on how to dismantle ablism in technology systems:
“Codified ablism could be the most immediate threat to the future of inclusion for persons with disabilities. AT Global Disability Innovation Hub, we innovate for disability to create a fairer world. We must address ablism as a human issue first by creating awareness and educating everyone about the value of disability for sustainability and prosperity of humanity. In the history of the world, every time there is mass exclusion anddiscrimination, we lose a part of humanity”.
RightsCon is the world’s leading summit on human rights in the digital age.
