In their own words:

“At AT&T, we understand that accessibility is more than a word; it’s a commitment to connect people to the world around them. We also understand that we must go beyond mere accessibility to full inclusion and belonging.  Which is why we are proud to work with the World Institute on Disability to elevate and support people with disabilities globally.”
