2017 Conference Accessibility Initiative

For the second consecutive year, the World Institute on Disability (WID) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. are partnering with several civil rights and community development organizations to highlight conference accessibility.

Much like in 2016, this year, WID and JPMorgan Chase are achieving this by providing accessibility enhancements, such as sign language interpreters, open captioning, accessible transportation, rented mobility devices, sighted guides, scholarships for Disability Ambassadors, and a disability concierge desk, as well as support and training for conference organizers, hotel staff, and A/V teams.

WID is delighted to be partnering again with captioner, Deanna Baker, who helped us ensure thousands of people experienced open captioning for the first time in 2016!
