How to reshape ‘the ability’ to build inclusive ecosystems? (with Tiffany Yu, Diversability)
May 10, 2020
In this episode, we connect the dots of diversity & disability.
How to reshape concepts of disability to help technologists and policymakers build truly inclusive ecosystems? How to come up with criteria and terms which help to avoid biases? How to spread this knowledge into the mainstream?
Today’s conversation with Tiffany Yu. She is the founder of the Diversability, social enterprise known for its longterm journey and dedication to empowering people with various types of disabilities to express and reshape their potential. She is also a part of the Mayor’s Disability Council at San-Francisco.
Over our conversation, we bring an intersectional view on how to democratize diversity & disability from individual, social and technology perspectives. In particular, we discuss the story of the Diversability, why assistive technologies fail, inclusive cities, disability policies and much more.
