Disabled people make up a significant amount of the population and offer unique insights into technology.

However, they are massively under-represented in the technology sector. They are disabled from it.

Technology can be used to make a difference in areas of disability and inclusion.

The more disabled people in tech are making tech from lived experience, the more inclusive tech will be.

Technology should be produced responsibly from the beginning with and by disabled people so it is accessible to all, rather than an afterthought to gain compliance standards.

Tech For disAbility is a working group set up within the wider Tech London and Global Tech Advocates network.

It aims to build bridges between the disabled community and the tech industry with events and content from the exchange of information and ideas we can share across our network.
