TLA Tech For disAbility Inclusive Conversations - First Tuesday at 17:00 UK time every two months

About this event

Tech London Advocates (TLA) Tech For disAbility is back for a new series of Inclusive Conversations. We aim to connect the disabled and tech communities to facilitate the exchange and sharing of information to promote knowledge, awareness, and opportunities so technology can benefit everyone.

Our series normally takes place on the first Tuesday every two months starting from April. The start time is at 17:00-18:00 UK time.

Next Tech For disAbility Inclusive Conversation - 14 June 2022 (part of London Tech Week)

Note the change of usual date cycle. This will be a special version of our event as part of the fringe sessions in London Tech Week 2022 as Tech London Advocates is a sponsor.

For this special session, we will partner with Policy Connect, and their ATech Policy Lab.

It will be a panel discussion on digital inclusion across all disabilities, bringing together disabled organisations, officials from government, organisations like Good Things Foundation, Digital Poverty Alliance and other stakeholders, to continue the conversation about digital inclusion. Policy Connect brings together the corporate and charitable trust sectors to crowdsource funding and fill the gap in funding for programmes like the Digital Lifeline Fund.

We will add more info soon and note that attendees will come from London Tech Week and Policy Connect, so the audience and the format will differ from our own. However, it should be a very interesting and relevant discussion, and you will be free to share comments through the Zoom tools.

Please note this event will use a different Zoom link and be recorded with real-time captions, so turn off your camera and be aware of this should you not wish to be recorded. Do email any accessibility requirements before the event to info@techfordisability.org.uk. See you there!

About Tech For disAbility

In previous sessions, we’ve seen early demos of VR worlds and banking management for vulnerable people. We hosted a panel discussion on tech for neurodiversity at London Tech Week that expanded our global audience. There were spontaneous discussions of how retail could understand more of deaf needs, repurposing disabled schemes from one industry to the tech industry, and how public APIs could recognise a schema of accessibility needs shared as an individual profile.

We want to be at the hub of content flowing through this network. One way to do so is through our meetings, so please attend to add to the conversation and ideas. Another way is to contribute relevant news and information to us so we can distribute it through our platform.

We’ll plan to have at least one speaker as a conversation starter. They might be a disability consultant, advocate, researcher, startup entrepreneur or a tech business employee.

Please note that this group is backed by Tech London Advocates, a network to promote London as a global capital of technology. TLA is part of Global Tech Advocates, so all are welcome. If you aren’t already a member of Tech London Advocates, you can join by booking attendance, and TLA will follow up to welcome you should you agree.
